The rubbish collected on the 13 mile hike
The recent Sponsored Litter Pick carried out by Cornwall Council and Community Assisted Projects in support of BBC Children in need raised a staggering £1525 for this highly respected charity. A total distance of 13 miles was walked and a van full of rubbish collected.
It was disappointing to see the significant amounts of litter dropped on the Coast to Coast Mineral Tramway and a lot of it irresponsibly disposed of by recreational users. The offenders should clearly know better. Why on earth dispose of drink canisters and food rappers on this well used facility? People who use it should not abuse it, so there still remains an enormous task ahead to change people’s habits.
Some more rubbish pictures but all in all less litter is being dropped.
Well done to Amber Caley, year nine pupil at Redruth School for winning our design a logo competition.
We’ve changed our logo to Amber’s winning design so you can see it for yourselves!

There was a fantastic report about the leat project in today’s Cornish Guardian, written by journalist Owen Pye. The same article should appear in tomorrow’s West Briton.
It is an extremely well written and is called “New leat of life, and a credit to Redruth”. What could be a more positive story than that for Redruth. West Country T.V are filming on site tomorrow. This is all very good news.
We hope you agree it shows what a great community project this is.
We had a sneak preview today of the nesting boxes, built by students of Redruth School.
They have done a fantastic job constructing them. It will be another great improvement to the leats area when they are fixed to the trees, hopefully attracting more bird life to the area.
