Spring Clean-up

17th March 2013. Around 40 - 50 people turned up to help clear the riverbank on a dull, cold but dry Sunday morning. Although the amount of rubbish was not so great as in the Autumn there was enough to keep the volunteers busy for a couple of hours. Members of the Wivenhoe Society, Wivenhoe Cubs (accompanied by leaders) and other Wivenhoe residents collected the rubbish in bags which was then collected by two Wivenhoe Town Council employees with their trucks, and deposited in the skip kindly provided by Eastern Waste Disposal. Sustrans joined the group starting at the University Quays. Dilly Meyer is the Sustrans Representative for the Wivenhoe Trail. We are most grateful to all volunteers, council staff and of course EWD for their help with this Spring Cleanup.
