Messing about on the river.

On a very cold Friday Morning we found ourselves in Lismore Close litter-picking. This is the site of part of the river Rea. One of the projects the Ward Committee has been funding is work to clean up the river in conjunction with the City's drainage engineers. They have been dredging parts that were overgrown with bushes and trees growing within the river bed which could cause backing up and flooding when debris gets caught up.
The photos we have show the newly dredged river, a party of Council workers and volunteers starting work and Sue with local stalwart Terry litter-picking.
