Friends of The Shuttle events – March 2014

Dear Friends of the Shuttle volunteers and supporters,

February saw a very successful event on the River Shuttle with a brilliant turn out of volunteers, a film crew and the removal of 15 bags of rubbish along with a bike, fire place and sofa cushions! Volunteers enjoyed some sunshine and fresh air, a lovely atmosphere and even a cup of tea and biscuit after the event! During the half term holiday local families helped to remove 6 bags of rubbish from the river where it flows through Holly Oak Wood Park and made a real difference to the wildlife living there – well-done!

Spring is beginning to emerge so there is no better time to get out onto the river, see some of the spring flowers appearing and of course help to keep our little river clear of rubbish. Friends of the Shuttle have a few different events in the pipeline so watch this space for future events emails…
