SPRUC­ING UP POCK­LING­TON

Canal Boat - - News -

A pro­ject has been launched by the Canal & River Trust to re­move over­growth and carry out tree works on the Pock­ling­ton Canal. It will sup­port ef­forts to im­prove the sta­tus of the canal as a Site of Spe­cial Sci­en­tific In­ter­est ( SSSI), re­duc­ing the shad­ing that trees and veg­e­ta­tion cast on the wa­ter and giv­ing a boost to im­por­tant aquatic plants and other species. The pro­ject is be­ing funded through a £45,000 grant awarded by WREN’s FCC Com­mu­nity Ac­tion Fund from funds do­nated through the Land­fill Com­mu­ni­ties Fund.
