Salford Wetlands

Please spare a few hours to help us make a big difference to the River Irwell in Salford.
The Irwell is blighted by litter that's accumulated over decades. The new wetlands are brilliant - and Kersal Dale on the opposite bank is beautiful - the river isn't.
We will be removing old tyres, traffic cones, plastics, bikes etc from the riverbank plus a general litter pick for anyone who wants a less strenuous morning.
We will be working with the Salford Ranger Team, and Salford Womens Institute (no calendar photos please ladies)
Everyone welcome to join in - individuals, families, community groups
The gates to the wetlands will be open from 9.30am until 11am - please drive through the gates - keep driving straight ahead - and you will see other cars in the distance.
