Volunteers Spring To Action

Spring is the season when fresh hope returns across the land and members of the community happily get involved in 'doing their bit'.

Reading's student population is showing their community spirit as Liberal Youth starts its' Clean-Up Campus Campaign.

They have organised a series of events culminating with a panel discussion from 7.30pm on Monday 15th Febuary 'Is the World Still in Our Hands?' which is open to the public.

Meanwhile Reading Post advertises the 21st annual Rivers and Environmental Spaces Clean Up Event (RESCUE), which will be held over the weekend of March 13th and 14th.

In 2009 28 tonnes of rubbish was cleaered from 35 sites by 464 volunteers.

You can get involved by calling 0118 937 2100, through the RESCUE website, or by joining the Facebook group.

But if you'd prefer not to get your hands dirty when you roll up your sleeves, Reading Half Marathon is looking for volunteers who will act as stewards for the route on Sunday 21st March - contact Jackie on 0118 901 6000 or email her
