The Europe wide River, Lake & Coastal Cleanup Day which is part of the worldwide Oceans Initiative 2011 has not received as much publicity as last year. The ICU and a small group of club members were out on March, 26 2011 at Lucan doing a cleanup.
Thanks to everyones work last year there were less bags and hopefully, with continued support it will be less year on year.
The ICU are going to be at Wren’s Nest in Strawberry Beds on Saturday, April 9 2011 from 2:00pm – 5:00pm and we are going to help out again.
Some people will be in boats and some will walk the banks so bring your normal river gear and we will decide on the day who goes where. Just make sure to bring some gloves and, if you have, some garden tools such as rakes or clippers.
It will be a great day out and we can tidy up our favourite playground a bit. And afterwards we can all go to the Strawhall for some refreshments.
Hope to see as many people as possible there!
