Twelve Gala Waterways Group volunteers last Saturday cleared ivy and undergrowth beside the Gala Water near the town’s transport interchange.

Claire Howden, the group’s chairperson, said: “We were very pleased with the number of volunteers who turned up on a miserable morning, and very grateful for their efforts in tidying up this prominent part of the Gala Water.”

The group’s next work party will be held on Saturday, March 3.
