CHARLTON Brook is getting by with a little help from its friends.
The Friends of Charlton Brook regularly do their bit to keep the area near High Green, Burncross and Chapeltown a pleasant green space.
The group held a work day when volunteers collected several large bags of rubbish from the area. They also cleared debris from the brook before cutting back trees and shrubs to keep pathways clear. As a result of their hard work the area surrounding Charlton Brook hosts a variety of wildlife.
Sections of woodland run along the site, some of which are ancient areas of meadows and heritage forest.
The group holds regular work days and is always pleased to welcome new members.
Members will next meet on Monday, March 4, at 7.30pm in The Bridge Inn, Hollow Gate, Chapeltown.
