Chloe our rivers manager and Jess and Anthony our new trainees, were supported well with a great team including three enthusiastic children, all giving up their time freely to help make a difference and really improve the health of this very important river. Through the team’s efforts to remove this menacing species, oxygen and sunlight reaching the water will increase and silt will be reduced, which will allow wildlife to thrive and enhance biodiversity.

On this day the volunteers removed 8 bags of rubbish and some of the last large sections of the Floating Pennywort, by literally dragging it out of the river. We are so grateful to our volunteers for helping us with this big problem and are pleased they are enjoying the sessions and the word is spreading to get involved.
