Harlesden canal cleaned up by kind-hearted volunteers
Special event was organised by waterway charity Thames21
Volunteers took time out of their weekend to spruce up a stretch of canal in Harlesden.
They came from across the borough to join waterway charity Thames21 for a special clean-up event.
Eight donned gloves and overalls to clear rubbish and fill bin bags from the Grand Union Canal at Twford Abbey Road.
Vicky D’souza, one of the organisers from Thames 21 said: “In total 20 bin bags of rubbish were removed from the towpath and canal and the volunteers worked really hard.”
