We were approached by a local community group, Brereton Millions, who wanted to do a litter pick around Brereton which would include the canal area.
As we needed to get CRT’s support and litter picking kit, it seemed sensible to ask for IWA Lichfield Branch volunteers to join in and extend the litter picking area to include Rugeley.
Although there were only four of us on the day, this supplemented the other volunteers. Between us we had a lovely morning as the weather was glorious. Most of the litter was in the Brereton area just off the canal towpath as there had been a community litter pick in Rugeley recently, plus visits on a regular basis from the Community Payback group.
The result of all this activity means that the towpath area around Rugeley and Brereton has never looked more litter free. Long live community involvement!
