The Parish of Yealand Redmayne adopted a stretch ( about a mile long ) of the Canal, known as The Northern Reaches in 2016. They hope to improve the area, with Tidy Up Days, planting of bulbs, etc., enlisting the help of volunteers from the School and Village. A Lifebuoy is now installed; see below. Contact Mike Macklin or the Clerk if you wish to assist.
The next Tidy Up day is to be on Friday 8 March 2019. Please meet at the Bridge near Cinderbarrow, for a 10.00am Start. LIfe Jackets & Hi Vis vests will be provided, along with grabbers and refuse sacks. A Risk Assessment will be done before we start. Please wear sensible footwear and clothing. Any questions ? Contact either the Clerk or Councillor Mike Macklin.
