The Canal – Weed Removal

Posted on 22nd August, 2019 in News

A small group of volunteers from the angling club are starting to clear the weed, which has prevented fishing in recent weeks,  from the canal.

The weather and the oxygen levels in the canal are now suitable for the work to be done with minimal risk of harm to the fish.  The weed that is taken from the canal will be left near the canal banks for a minimum of 24 hours – this is to enable any fish or other creatures to make their way back to the water.

The Town Council’s Grounds Maintenance Team will remove the dried weed for burning in due course – this will be done when resources (time and staff) allow but is unlikely to be completed until the first week in September.
