The River Aire needs you!

Following recent flooding a vast amount of man made debris has been left deposited along the banks of the river Aire.

Together we can remove this debris and in doing so help prevent further pollution and danger to wildlife along with improving the visual appearance of an area enjoyed by many people from all walks of life.

In doing so we can also build a stronger community and discuss ideas on how we can work together to prevent and resolve the impact of flooding and the problems it can bring.

If you would like to help please come along on the following dates or pass this on to any one you think may wish to get involved – all are welcome.
