Rayner Park South

The beautiful Borsdane Brook, that flows down from Aspull to Pennington Flash/River Glaze is in serious need of some TLC where it flows through the town centre of Hindley.....
We are holding a river clean up event on Sunday 2nd December - and it would be great if you could come and help us.

Borsdane Brook - is a beautiful little waterway - and has fab populations of Kingfishers, Dippers, Wagtails, Brown Trout and lots of mini fish species (though you would never believe this if you saw the brook in Hindley town centre).
As always - meet up/sign in at our blue gazebo - where hot drinks, biscuits and a friendly smile await all volunteers.
Looking forwards to seeing old faces and new.
The MRT Team :)
