Some members of Tipton Community Association responded to a call from the Dudley Canal Trust for help to clean an area of the towpath opposite Caggy's boat yard, and what a challenge it was. With a team of 22 volunteers made up of people from Canal & River Trust, Birmingham Canal Navigations Society, Dudley Canal Trust, TCA and local residents the challenge was met. Items found and removed were, amongst others, two settees (very heavy indeed), wardrobes, a toilet, mattresses, bedding and carpets.
The team leader was Steve Lambert from the Canal & River Trust. Steve had brought a little gas stove and made sure that all the volunteers had a tea/coffee and biscuits. Ann Johnson had made her gorgeous bread pudding which was highly appreciated. A good day was had by all involved.
