On Saturday (September 6) members of Gala Waterways Group completed their work removing undergrowth along a 125-metre stretch of the Mill Lade behind ProStrakan on Queen Street. The workparty generated about five cubic metres of prunings, and collected 13 kg of rubbish.

David Usher said: “Over the last five months we have had a series of productive and mainly enjoyable workparties. Our biggest challenge will be to clear all the silt from the Mill Lade, which has accumulated over years of neglect.”

The group are grateful to ProStrakan and to other companies, for access to the lade; and to SBC for removal of the prunings.
