This Rivercare event coincided with World Rivers Day. The event was supported by McDonald’s who kindly did river-themed face painting and supplied all volunteers with vouchers for free food. The event was also supported by the Environment Agency and the Sub Aqua Divers who managed to retrieve a lot of bulky items from the river which included 3 shopping trolleys, 1 bicycle, 2 safety rings, 4 cones, scaffold pole, 5 pieces of insulated foam board, wire basket, telephone, 2 hi fi’s, road signs, bike frame and a cash box. Volunteers on land collected 33 bags of litter. The event was featured on Saturday’s Anglia News programme.
