IMG_8334Next River Stour clean-up event

Date: Sunday 29th June, 10.15 for 10.30

Place: Richardson Drive ( Off Wollaston Road), Stourbridge

Directions: Take Harrop way off Richardson Drive. Parking needs to be sensitive as it’s a residential area.

There is some nasty rubbish in the river around the small bridge there and a great deal of Himalayan Balsam which needs to be pulled out (for those who don’t want to get into the river).If you have some favourite gloves please bring them or we can provide.

Himalayan Balsam is an invasive species which is taking over and ousting our native plants (though it’s true the bees do like it.) This is a good time to remove it.

We hope to get back under the bridge at some point before too long to finish the job with the help of ‘The Warrior’!

I understand that the Council may have given the green light for a sign on the Stour Bridge saying River Stour.

All the best,
Rosanne

    Inspiring news about the nevi-stating affect on our rivers but especially the River Stour as it my local river. I will lend a hand if I can help.
