Clean the Canal 2.0
Did you know that Glasgow translates as 'Dear Green Place' in Gaelic? Sadly many of our canals and green spaces are becoming choked with plastic waste.
Did you know that Glasgow translates as 'Dear Green Place' in Gaelic? Sadly many of our canals and green spaces are becoming choked with plastic waste. Glasgow Over Plastic are holding our third community clean-up at the Fourth and Clyde Canal in Maryhill, in a bid to return Glasgow to its rightful status as a Dear Green Place. We'd like to invite you to join us for the event, where you will meet lots of friendly people and help make Glasgow an even better place to live. We had more than 70 attendees at our last event and we'd love to see you all again, as well as some new faces! This time we are being kindly hosted by Free Wheel North, a fantastic cycling development charity based here in Glasgow. We will be meeting at their centre at The White House in Maryhill. We will also be joined by Scottish Canals, who will be helping us run the event. After the cleanup we will be heading to a local pub for a pint and a chat. We'd love for you to join us!
