On Sunday 5th June we saw fish swimming in the now fast flowing river, and as we were leaving we spotted a Kingfisher. It’s incredible to see nature returning to this stunning wildlife corridor we have right in the heart of Stourbridge.
If you visit be very careful as also at the moment there is Giant Hogweed growing, which contains toxic sap which can cause severe burns. And if you see any litter, please pick it up and help us keep our town Green and Tidy for us all and the wildlife. Many thanks.
A lovely Sunny morning, with lots of enthusiastic river clean up volunteers ready for action.
Geraldine Bray named the new boat the ‘Little Stour Warrior’ and she was launched down the slipway into the river – helping to haul out rubbish from under the Stour Bridge. The pile of rubbish included 12 shopping trolleys!
Those who had brought seeds set to work cleaning out a gulley in a girder and planting seeds to cheer up a forlorn spot.
Many people wrote in to say that there were tyres in the river Stour between Corngreaves Hall and Hayseech Road. Compared to other sites we have cleaned the problems are much less dramatic, so in some ways it could be called a ‘mini’ event.
We will still need people to help get the tyres out (I will bring the waders) litter pickers, and people in wellies to fish litter out of the river debris.
