Ullswater Litter Pick November 2018

10 Nov 2018 - Emma

For several years Distant Horizons have organised canoe-based litter picks on Ullswater in a bid to help make it a cleaner place to live, visit and enjoy. This year they are joining forces with Lake District National Park Volunteers to collect litter from key sites around Ullswater, and along the Ullswater Way.

When is it happening?

Wednesday 21 November, 10am – 1pm at Eusemere Car Park, Pooley Bridge.

How can I get involved?

On the water, Distant Horizons will utilise their fleet of canoes launching from Pooley Bridge to enable volunteers to easily access the shoreline to gather litter which has blown down the lake during the Winter months. Distant Horizons will provide qualified canoe guides, all canoe equipment, buoyancy aids etc, and will raft the canoes together to make sturdy litter carrying vessels.

On land, volunteers will collect litter from key locations around Ullswater, and along the Ullswater Way.

We will provide all litter picking equipment, so all you need to do is bring yourselves, wellies and warm/waterproof clothing.

For more details and to register for either canoeing, or the land based litter pick: please ring 01768 871409 or email suzyhankin@lakedistrict.gov.uk
