Volunteers maintaining the banks of the River Aire since the Boxing Day floods of 2015 will host their first clean-up event of 2019 tomorrow (Friday, February 8).

The special River Stewardship volunteer day – which is part of the Leeds Flood Alleviation Scheme – will start at 10am and will clear pathways and pick litter at Burley Mills Weir.


The event is facilitated by Kirkstall Road-based Open Source Arts, which was flooded back in 2015. It’s one of two strands of riverbank clean-ups run by Open Source Arts this year.
