This Saturday (11 August) the team has arranged a litter pick around the park – while on the following Wednesday (15 August) now that the lake level has dropped, they will be cleaning out the lake – removing as much rubbish, wood and stone as possible.
Encouraging residents to take part, St Helens Council’s Cabinet Member for Better Neighbourhoods, Councillor Lynn Clarke, said:
“We’re lucky to have so many beautiful parks and open spaces in our borough which visitors should be able to enjoy without coming across eyesores such as litter.
“Our Rangers do a fantastic job of maintaining our parks, but to ensure all ground is covered when it comes to removing litter, it’s always good to see the public and community groups like the Friends of Taylor Park and St Helens Model Boat Club show great pride and spirit by offering their time to help out, which is hugely appreciated in return.”
Both events will take place between 10:00am-12:00pm and anyone interested in taking part is asked to meet outside the Boathouse café just before 10:00am.
Litter pickers and bin bags will be provided; participants are just asked to bring along their own gloves and wear suitable footwear.
