The Big Paddle Clean Up

GSCC are taking part in British Canoeing’s annual “The Big Paddle clean Up” this week.

For Part 1 on Tuesday evening we were joined by British Canoeing’s Club Support Officer, Phil Scowcroft. We went north to the motorway bridge, then down the old river to the county bridge.

There wasn’t actually that much litter, which was good to see, though we did still collect a few bags of plastic bottles etc. Our main finds were a section of barrier fencing, two traffic sign stands and a fire extinguisher!

It was then back to the boathouse for soup and hotdogs!

Part 2 is on Thursday when we will attempt the southern section! All GSCC welcome to join in.
