Stream Dipping 2017

We had an amazing turnout today for the stream dipping event! Monsters, mud and creatures that lurk! Many thanks to Durham Wildlife Trust for helping us to see what creatures live in the stream in Harperley Woods. Also thanks to Stanley Town Council for funding the activity.

42 bags of rubbish collected!

Many thanks to the 16 volunteers who turned out this morning to pick 42 bags of litter from Tanfield Lea and Harperley Woods. We found gas canisters, a toilet seat, a roller blind, a fan, bags of vegetable peelings, McDonald’s food and drink cartons and some lost property (handed in to the Police Station). Thanks to Clive for picking 30 bags out of the woods earlier this week! Thanks also to the new ladies hair salon situated in the club car park for the very welcome teas and coffees afterwards!
