On 17th September ITV carried out a national campaign to clean up areas across the country. He event was called the ‘Big Clean’ and Spen Burn Woods was one of the areas chosen to take part.
The aim of the event was to encourage volunteers, mainly young people, to spend a day helping to clean up the wood. As a result, 100 volunteers collected 3 skip loads of rubbish including old bikes and vacuum cleaners, typewriters, lawn-mowers and, would you believe it, an old litter bin!
A big thank you to everyone involved.
