IWA Middlesex Branch carried out a towpath clean-up on the Grand Union Canal, Paddington Arm, on Saturday 1st June 2013. This event was supported by C&RT who provided a work boat along with litter pickers, gloves etc.
Volunteers met at Bridge 20, Uxbridge Road, Southall. 14 participants split into two groups some heading in a Northerly direction and the reminder in a Southerly direction.
The areas between Bridges 19 and 21 were cleared. Volunteers then carried on in a Westerly direction along the Grand Union Canal main line as far as Bridge 200C in Hayes.
It was a very successful day and approximately 60 plastic bags of litter were collected.
