This was the third annual railings clean. More than 400 children from local schools, led by students from Buxton & Leek College and the University of Derby, gathered to clean the winter's algae off the Pavilion Gardens park railings. Why? Well, quite a few reasons ...
- the railings looked hugely better afterwards
- they're our railings, we should look after them
- the children learned about volunteering and the importance of community
- they had a really, really fun time!
Amazingly, the traditional railings clean blizzard came through at lunchtime when everyone was taking a break.
Watch our video of what happened on previous railings cleans. We hope to be able to post photos and video of this year's Railings Clean soon.
