River Severn Clean Up

The river clean up began in Shrewsbury as part of the annual Love Your Magnificent River Severn campaign by Shropshire Wildlife Trust.

Trust staff and volunteers canoed sections of the waterway removing as much litter as they can. 

We let our trusty Picnic Boat 'Little Rea' lose for this occasion to help volunteers collect rubbish from the banks and to carry larger items pulled from the river. 

Some items pulled from the river included a stack of traffic cones, an office chair, a saw, lots of broken bottles and even a bike! In total Shropshire Council took three trailer loads of rubbish away.
