I wanted to highlight the excellent campaign being rolled out in my ward of Droylsden East; one that should see the canal, which runs right through it, brought back into use as a community facility.
The canal towpath which runs from the Manchester border on one side to the Audenshaw boundary on the other has been adopted by a friends group who have pledged to not only tidy it up but beautify it for everyone to enjoy. The project is part of British Waterways adopt-a-canal scheme, which has been set up to encourage positive action like that which is going on in Droylsden.
The group has only just been set up so is looking for more members, the more the merrier, and a number of events have been lined up to promote the cause. I do hope that as many people as possible join in. Any interested parties should keep an eye on the local press for information or just keep reading my blogs because I, for one, will be keeping an eye on proceedings!
