Make Every Moment Special in Our Community

During National Volunteers Week (1-10 June), volunteers from M&S will give up their time to support projects across the country, in an epic week of action for social good. We are very excited to be part of @MarksandSpencer #SpendItWell here in Whaley Bridge.

M&S are sponsoring Whaley Bridge Canal Group who will planting wildlife friendly bushes and plants in the basin. They’ll also be kept busy installing some posts to keep the grassed areas clean and tidy. This is going to make a real difference to the basin and the town. Thank you M&S Buxton for both funding the project and for providing some workers from the store.

Members of the public are welcome and indeed encouraged to join in as well. Refreshments and food will be provided from Pear Tree cafe.

The event happens from 10 am to 4 pm on Thursday June the 8th. Yes something else may be going on that day 🙂 You don’t need to be there for the full day, but you can if you wish. You’ll be fed as well. Importantly, the basin and canal are also being re-evaluated for our Green Flag status at some time during the event. So the more people we have down there when the judges arrive the better for the village.

In addition, the group have their regular clean up session this Sunday June 4th, from 12 noon till 3 pm (again turn up at any time). Meet at the basin for both events and look out for yellow jackets.

Lastly, the next market is on Saturday June the 17th, 10 am to 3 pm. Please spread the word and more importantly get down to the basin and get some great bargains.
