SKDC is appealing for more volunteers to join a litter pick effort at Grantham Canal.

Members of the local community are set to help the authority’s estate inspectors and SKDC staff clear the towpath of waste items on Saturday, April 26, between 11am and 1pm.

But SKDC wants to hear from other residents willing to help the effort that is meeting at the Thames Road car park close to the canal at 11am on the day.

The effort will clear the area from the Earlesfield Lane bridge up to Swingbridge Road.

The authority regularly maintains and litter picks the area to make it cleaner, greener and healthier for residents and visitors but is appealing for extra help to this dedicated two hour session.

Contractors and SKDC’s Waste and Recycling Team worked extensively to remove large items from the canal basin and cut back overgrowth at the site last year.

Part of the effort is to clear debris that has rotted down from the work in the spring weather.

Signs appealing to help the effort have already been advertised around the canal and in the neighbouring Earlesfield estate.

Those wishing to get involved should call 01476 40 60 80 and ask to speak to the estate management team or get in touch on social media by tweeting @southkesteven or visit www.facebook.com/southkdc

Alternatively residents can turn up on the day. Gloves, bin bags and litter pickers will be provided.
