Ullswater Litter Pick 2019

Fancy giving Ullswater a Spring Clean this March? Ullswater Canoe Litter Pick is back!

Do you fancy doing your bit to give Ullswater a Spring Clean this March? Distant Horizons and the Lake District National Park are once again organising a canoe and land-based litter pick this March in a bid to help make it a cleaner place to live, visit and enjoy. The Litter Pick is taking place on 6 March, at Ullswater Yacht Club from 9.30 – 1pm.

On the water, Distant Horizons will launch their fleet of canoes from Ullswater Yacht Club to enable volunteers to easily access the shoreline to gather litter which has blown down the lake over the past year. 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.  All litter picking equipment is provided, so all you need to do is bring yourselves, wellies and warm/waterproof clothing.

Well-earned hot drinks and cakes will also be on offer after the litter pick in the Yacht Club.

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
