Five hardy volunteers spent a productive if rather damp morning recently removing large items from the river. Their haul included five shopping trolleys, six bicycles, a large radiator, a kitchen bench and a lot of odd bits of metal and wood which clearly don’t belong in the river. Oh, and a six piece dinner service….
Removing invasive Himalayan Balsam is a regular activity for FoRF volunteers. Now they will stay dry as well, thanks to a grant of £300 from the Mayor’s fund which enabled us to buy waders in a good range of sizes.
Children are welcome, but must be accompanied by a responsible adult FRF will supply all the kit Please come dressed in clothes that won’t be damaged by brambles or mud. Please wear robust shoes or boots, and if possible bring gloves.
10- 12. Meet at the riverside near Cheese and Grain
