Digbeth Canal Clean Up Day
Local residents Alison and Louise live on the Grand Union Canal by Minerva Works in Digbeth, and have made it their mission to clean up the waterway.
Alison has the support of the Canal and River Trust to run a canal clean up team on the first Sunday of every month. The next event will take place on Easter Sunday, 5th April; all volunteers willing to give up some time on the Bank Holiday will be helped along by a workboat!
The first Digbeth towpath tidy was attended by a number of keen residents, along with Digbeth PC Karen Jones, who collected over 20 bags of litter over the course of the afternoon. We would really encourage anyone who can to lend a hand, even for just a short time, to support this fantastic cause.
