Ickles Lock Tree-planting Volunteer Day

23-11-21 10:00 - 13:00
Brinsworth St, Rotherham S60 1AB, UK
Address: Brinsworth St, Rotherham S60 1AB, UK

Join the Friends of the Don Valley Way and Rotherham Council for a day of tree-planting at Ickles Lock. We’ll be planting small trees onto a grassland area. The trees are a mixture of native species that will act to support wildlife and provide new woodland habitat at the site. These trees will also help soak up and intercept rainwater, helping to ‘slow the flow’ of water into the navigation during high rainfall events.

 

Times: 10am-1pm
Date: Tuesday 23rd November

Where: We are meeting at the small car park off Brinsworth street. Go over the level crossing, then over the bridge over the canal and it’s the second right into the car park.

Equipment and protective gear, like wellingtons, will be provided for volunteers to borrow on the day.
Hot drinks and biccies provided, but please bring your own water and lunch if you’ll need it.

New volunteers are always welcome, but please contact the office before – volunteer@dcrt.org.uk
