Great summer clean stoke 2019

Thursday 6 June

9.30am until 2pm

Our ‘Great Summer Clean Stoke’ is back!

We had great fun last year, collecting 275kg of waste over a 10 mile stretch on the Trent & Mersey Canal. We’ve been inspired by David Attenborough’s Blue Planet, Sky’s #PassOnPlastic and the growing concern with single-use plastics that are damaging our local environment.

Our plan this year is to go even bigger with the help of our local Canal & River Trust team, the Middleport workboat, canoe clubs, and the local business community.

What’s the plan for the day?

On Thursday 6 June our adventure will start at Etruria, taking us up to Westport Lake and down to Joiners Square. We’ll be collecting rubbish and plastic in a variety of ways. You’ll be able to hop on canoes, walk along towpaths, and even take a voyage on the Middleport workboat.

We’d love you to get involved. If you or your team would like to join us for a couple of hours or even the day if you can spare the time, please register your interest.

There’ll be some refreshments on us to say thank you for helping us make a difference.
