Three Trees Community Centre
The project involved Northern Star's young people to organise and take part in a programme of walks, activities, residential trips and events to investigate our local borough’s extensive river network and local waterways.
The walks and residential trips took place throughout the length of the project and started from Chelmsley Wood and ended in Small Heath. It included a series of walks and wades along the river Cole, including through Chelmsley Wood, Meriden Park, Yorks Wood, Babbs Mill Lake, Alcott Wood, Sheldon Hall through to Small Heath and the Grand Union Canal. The young people taking part researched the riverways as they walked, having plenty to observe along the way.
