Help tidy up Reading next week as part of Reading RESCUE #rdguk

Why not help make a difference and tidy up Reading next week by coming along to one of the Reading RESCUE events at 2 PM on Saturday, March 15?

RESCUE (Rivers and Environmental Spaces Cleanup Event) has been going on for a number of years and is about improving our local environment.

Newtown GLOBE and the Kennet and Brunel Community Association have organised a few events in East Reading.

In Newtown we will be doing a tidy up at Kennet Mouth – where the River Kennet joins the River Thames – including picking litter and pruning the Willow hedge.

We will also be having a go at clearing some more of the rubbish out of the alley near the junction of London Road and Manchester Road.

The main meeting place if there is no flooding will be at the river end of Cholmeley Road at 2 PM. If the area is flooded the main meeting place will be at the junction of London Road and Manchester Road again at 2 PM. Either way, there will be an organiser at each of these locations at 2 PM on Saturday, March 15.

We have got some equipment from the Council, gloves, litter pickers, bags etc but if you have your own equipment including loppers for the willow please bring these along.

It would be good to have a rough idea of numbers, so let me know if you plan to come along.

Looking forward to making a difference with you.

Best wishes

Rob White
