Staff at an Enfield supermarket will help a charity make one of the borough's waterways a more pleasant place to be.

Staff at the Marks & Spencer will be helping clear up the River Lee on Tuesday, April 29 by collecting litter from the towpath and river.

The day will be part of the supermarket's big clean up with Canal and River Trust.

Trust chief executive Richard Parry said: “Our canals are a two-hundred year-old national treasure that are enjoyed by millions of people each year. They need looking after, and litter and debris can be a real problem, polluting water, restricting use of the canals and towpaths, and harming wildlife.

“That’s why we’re delighted to be joining forces again with Marks & Spencer and all the volunteers who take part in the Big Beach Clean-up. The event will build on the work that is done every day to keep the waterways in the best possible condition, with this year’s event set to be bigger and better than ever.”
