THE project to clear up and maintain a historic Sheffield waterway continues on Friday September 22 with the latest in a series of special volunteer days.
Ochre Dike is a small stream that rises in the Gleadless Townend area and meanders past Crystal Peaks before joining the River Rother in nearby Beighton.
Crystal Peaks shopping centre has a long running project with the Riverside Stewardship Company to restore the neglected waterway as part of its campaign to support the environment and volunteers are welcome to join to latest Clean Up Day on September 22, with others dates scheduled for October 27, November 25 and December 14.
The River Stewardship Company (RSC) was established by a group of public and third sector partners including Sheffield City Council, Groundwork Sheffield, Sheffield Wildlife Trust, Environment Agency, South Yorkshire Forest, Five Weirs Walk Trust and Upper Don Walk Trust.
It undertakes riverside management work and community projects involving local communities and volunteers.
