On 22 may Otley in Bloom teamed up with members of the Bethel church to clean up this beck which runs up behind Sainsburys through the centre of Otley.  It was part of our programme to involve local groups with the care of the urban environment and the Bethel Church borders the stream. We cleared a lot of rubbish which was blocking the stream. The stream is now flowing more freely, clearing space for the yellow wild irises which should flower soon. We aim to discourage people from leaving rubbish and dog poo bags there. We will be putting up a sign to advise local residents using the footpath and bridge about looking after it.
