Cleaning up the Mersey Basin: Urban river cleanups for World Rivers Day 2015 and beyond

River cleanup - Mersey Basin Rivers Trust

Inspired by the success of community cleanup events on urban rivers all over the UK (including the Don, Cale, Slea and Wandle), the Mersey Basin Rivers Trust has announced a new series of last-Sunday-of-the-month river cleanups across the Manchester area.

Cleanups will run from 10.30am until around 2pm, and heavy gloves, hot drinks and cake (yes, every good urban river event really does run on cake!) will be provided.

The first cleanup takes place this Sunday, and frankly we can’t imagine a better way to celebrate World Rivers Day 2015.

If you’re anywhere near Manchester this weekend, why not get down to the Irwell in Bury (postcode M26 2QJ) and see how much rubbish you can help clear off the banks of this amazing urban river?
