The Land Yeo Friends wishes to thank the following for donations which have assisted us in our mission to look after the river: (in alphabetic order)

Clevedon Town Council: provision of small grant funding which has enabled us to replace our broken power washer (vital for clean up after river clearance work) and to pay for trailer and boat insurance

Environment Agency; provision of a variety of equipment to support river clearance such as gloves, waders and rubbish bags.

Individual donations from the public.

Monmouthshire Building Society:  provision of funding for three Buoyancy aids to provide safe working from the boat during river clearance.

North Somerset Council: for erection of new gates and styles purchased by the land yeo Friends and assistance in completion of the Two Rivers Walk (works nearing completion)

Surfers against Sewage who allow us to work under the umbrella of their public indemnity insurance policy. They have also supplied us with a variety of  litter picking equipment and a first aid kit

 

The Land Yeo Friends are the main reason that the river has been given a new lease of life.

Should you wish to help please use the contact details on the right hand side of this page

Donations are always welcomed from people interested in helping with our continuing

work – which entails a great deal more than removing rubbish from the river!

    Whilst I appreceate the work you have done I and my neighbours are deeply concerned over the ever decreacing level of the the Land Yeo.We live in Yeo way and our houses back on to the river .Over the past 2-3 years the river level has dropped increasingly year on year, I have photos of the different river levels and whilst I understand it drops slightly in the winter ,the evidence is apparent on the river bank to previous levels.The banks are now frequently collapsing and the bottom is clearly visible.The levels are at least 18″ lower than they were3 years ago.
    Whilst I have had a conversation with Stewart Edwards regarding this I do not feel that your organisation were too concerned over the levels.Your brochure picture distributed to all households shows the river level as it used to be, a far cry from todays level ,
    You say you wish to maintain river levels ,what are you doing to promote a higher level or are you just accepting the levels set at the outlet and tilting weir at Cooks Clyse.The river has been dropped and we are not happy about it,if it carries on the way it is going we will be left with nothing more than a stream.
    Thanks Nick Lester 12 Yeo Way Clevedon
