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 Volunteer Day is to be on Friday 19 July at 10.00am. Scalpings are being delivered and will be spread along the towpath, either side of the Bridge at Tarn Lane. If you are willing to assist, please either contact Dawn Hancock ( Y Con ), Mike Macklin ( Y Red ), or the clerks at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org. The more the merrier, Thank You.
