River Clean Up on the River Calder, Ribble Rivers Trust

Padiham
What?
We are picking up litter along the River Calder, behind the Town Hall, in Padiham.Why?
Picking up litter helps to reduce it from entering our rivers that inevitably end up in the ocean. Litter leaks pollutants and can cause harm to wildlife and our environment. It also looks unsightly and is contributing to a global issue of plastic pollution.

What to bring:
Please come wearing clean wellies or sturdy boots (unclean footwear can transfer diseases more easily when working in or by water, such as carrying invasive plant seeds and insects). Bring a drink and snack to keep you going and we’ll provide the rest of the kit, as well as brews and biscuits at the end of the session. Don’t worry if you don’t have wellies, we’ll bring some extra pairs along.
