img_3988 Back in September, The Kaleidoscope Plus Group teamed up with WatersideCare to help with the clean-up of the Ridgacre canal in West Bromwich.

WatersideCare carry out regular conservation work, litter clean-ups, water quality improvement and wildlife surveying tasks.

Community Offer Co-ordinator, Rachel Stavlo led The Kaleidoscope Plus Group in the clean-up operation and was happy to be of help.

She said: “It was fantastic to be able to get hands on and make a real difference to my local area and the wildlife in it.

“If the work the charity did can help preserve at least one animal it will have been time well spent.”
