Staff and young people at Astbury Watersports centre this week have taken part in the British Canoeing Big paddle clean up.
The Big Paddle Clean up is a national campaign and ran for the whole week of May half term at clubs and groups up and down the country.
The young people who were taking part in the May Half Term Holiday Club learnt how to paddle a canoe and then worked their way around the shoreline of the lake with staff and collected litter from the reeds, under trees and from the lake itself.
They also learnt about the importance of keeping the waters clean and the effect litter can have on nature on the animals that may live in and around the lake.
Fun was had by all and it was of course followed by some splashing around after all of the hard work.
