Cocken Lake clean-up

Getting kitted out before the clean-up
Members of the Rotary Club of Furness Peninsula took part in a community clean-up and litter pick last night around the Cocken Lake and Channelside area of Barrow.

Working alongside Barrow Council's Neighbourhood Management team around 19 volunteers from the Rotary Club gathered nearly 20 bags of litter and other rubbish from around the site along with some other larger items such as bits of carpet, bedding, bits of wood and a bucket!

The rubbish mounts up at the collection point

Barrow Borough Council's Neighbourhood Manager, Steve Robson, said "The Rotary Club were offering their services to do something locally and together we decided on doing a clean-up around the Cocken Lake area. It was great to see so many volunteers come out to help and their work and enthusiasm was great. We very much look forward to working with them again in the future and would like to thank them all very much for their efforts."
The group with their final haul of rubbish - well done!
