Next River Stour clean-up morning
Date: Sunday 6th April
Time: 10.15 for 10.30
Place: Ludgebridge Brook (map)
Parking: You can either park in the hollow at the bottom of Wollescote road (having passed Wollescote Hall on your left) or actually in the car park at Wollescote Hall. Contact Rosanne, if you’d like to know more…
Ludgebridge brook is a stream which feeds into the River Stour, the brook runs through very pretty woodland, under Wollescote Road and into Stevens Park, Wollescote, Stourbridge. It eventually runs into the Stour somewhere around Bagley Street.
The area we are going to clean is off the Wollescote Road. (A gate on the right.. Hall on the left).
Masses of rubbish
We have cleaned masses of rubbish out of the brook in the past but never quite got to grips with the appalling rubbish at the top of the woodland and into Hilltop. There is also a bit of rubbish in the brook. It would be good if we could get at the rubbish before the vegetation starts to cover it. When we can be more certain of river depth and clarity we’ll be able to get back into the river.
Last year we ran a photographic competition to get people down to the Stour. We also published a calendar from the photos entered. If we are to do this again we need help with the technical side! If anyone feels they could take this on could you please let me know, thanks (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Message from Rod: ‘our boat is almost ready to launch’! We will have to find a name for her!
All the best and thanks to everyone for the tremendous support and interest in the project. Rosanne
