Autumn River Clean-up 2013

On Sunday 13th October 2013 the Wivenhoe Society organised the Autumn Riverbank Clean-up. Despite atrocious weather, pouring rain and high winds to begin with, 40 people, including cubs and beavers, braved the elements and met up at the railway station car park at 10am and proceeded to collect rubbish bags and trundle along the trail to start the clean-up.
The filled bags were deposited along the pathway and a council workman came along with a truck and collected the bags and tipped them into the skip, kindly provided by Eastern Waste Disposal from Brightlingsea. We are grateful to the volunteers, Wivenhoe council and of course EWD.
