Volunteers join forces to clean up Arnold park


A team of volunteers helped spruce up a park in Arnold last week in time for it to be used for the borough’s annual Remembrance Day service.

92 people from around the borough answered the call for help from park rangers at Arnot Hill Park and filled over 400 bin bags with fallen leaves during the volunteer day on Wednesday, November 9.

Children from Leo’s nursery and Robert Mellors Primary School also turned out to help with the clean-up.
