Dooder Action Day – Enjoy A Cleaner River

 

I have been writing to constituents to spread the word about the Dodder Action Day, organised by Dodder Action Group, a worth event that needs the communities support to work.

Dodder Action is an umbrella group of hardworking volunteers who want to maximise the potential of the River Dodder as an amenity for the local communities. The group includes residents associations, Tidy Town’s committee’s, the Dodder Anglers, and a host of other local volunteers.

As part of this work, the annual Dodder Action day sees volunteers come together to clean up the length of the river. Last year I took part with my scout group (Leeson Park), alongside other scout groups, local groups and volunteers in what was a hugely successful day.

I will be out again this year and it would be great if you could come and join us. Come along at a time and place that suits you
