FIRST WEEKEND WORK PARTY IN PONTARDWE: SUNDAY 21.5.17

Sunday01

The weather conditions were perfect for the inaugural Pontardawe Sunday Working Party’ on the canal.  Michelle chose a very ‘public’ location at the Aqueduct near Herbert Street so all the volunteers received much support and numerous expressions of gratitude for their efforts from local residents passing by. The venue coud not have been better.

There were eight volunteers present,  and the work that was achieved in three and a half hours was amazing.  Debris, including 3 traffic cones and a toilet seat, was removed from the canal, the off bank was cleared of rampant unwanted vegetation and a potential ‘planting area’ was created.

Here are two photos showing  ‘before’, and ‘after’ the clear up.
