The Community Cadets were out in force on Sunday 5th May at the Canal Waterway in NW10. The team were shocked by the state of the canal and decided to put a clean up in place. The founder of Kreation Station Yvonne Frazer, and her team as well as volunteers from the local community and the Metropolitan Police Force donned their wetsuits and climbed into the canal to clean up the horrific level of rubbish that had been thrown into the canal as well as the large amounts of algae that had formed.
The levels of algae and rubbish was beyond measure yet the team of Community Cadets and community volunteers who turned up to help on seeing what we were doing worked tirelessly for several hours to take it from a polluted mess to a beautifully clean environment. That is not to say there isnt more to be done and therefore the community cadets will join forces with the local heroes (volunteers) to do this again very soon.
In the meantime, if you feel there is any area in Brent where the Community Cadets can help, please please do let us know and we will be sure to get a team down there to assess!!
In addition, if you want to volunteer with the Community Cadet Corps then please do sign up now!!
