River Stour Event – Sunday 28th September
We will be clearing the rubbish from the river under the bridge and nearby and once again have The Little Stour Warrior helping to transport it.
Date: Sunday 28th September, 10:15 for a 10.30 start
Place: The Stour Bridge near the Bonded Warehouse, Stourbridge
Parking: Bonded Warehouse or Fox Removals
Very many thanks to all those who came last Sunday to clear the silt from the slipway by the bridge. It was a massive task but amazingly it got done with some formidable teamwork! Helen V. cleared the last bit of grass and weeds from the lower parapet and that’s now ready for some plants and seeds.
It’s beginning to look a bit more dignified! If you are coming and have plants or seeds.. please bring them. There are some more ambitious thoughts rumbling around about future improvements! Hopefully with the activity going on in the bridge area it will draw attention to the river. We had some friendly comments from passers by.
These are very hard to manage and transport. Would anybody have a large sports type bag
or two smaller ones they don’t need? The length needs to be at least 36″. It would be a great
help.. and they don’t need to be beautiful.. just strongish! Thanks.
So many thanks again to all of you who are making it possible to get something done about the River. Hopefully little by little, the ‘lost River Stour’ might become a bit less lost!
All the best, Rosanne
