Cleaning up The River Waveney
REPORT on January Waveney Litter-pick.
Luckily the first Saturday in January (7th) was a warm, sunny day – for January! – which may have encouraged so many people to turn up for the monthly litter-pick at the river Waveney. Meeting at the rear of Morrisons’ we were supplied with picking sticks, gloves, litter bags and hi-vi waistcoats, and given Health and Safety instructions. After some posing for the local paper, we split into 2 groups – one starting from the Lows footpath bridge and the other group to start from Denmark bridge – working toward each other.
The good company made work quick and easy and soon many black rubbish bags were filled and glass gathered into safely buckets, and luckily nothing more sinister was found!
As the first Saturday of the month clashes with volunteering at the Diss Woodland it was decided that future litter-picks would happen on the 2nd Saturday in the month from Feb 11th. Anyone wishing to help should meet at the rear of Morrisons at 10.00am. See you there…..
