9/1/ – As the weather has been so warm for the time of year we spent time clearing the river from Parnell Road to the Con C club, lots of watercress removed. Stewart/Frank/Trevor/Paul/Simon.
18/1 – Well the warm weather didn’t last and over night Clevedon had it’s fair share of snow. The following pictures, taken by Jamie, are of the river near Marshall’s Field.
20/3 – Due to adverse weather, since our last outing, this was the first opportunity to work on the river since the start of the year. We were able to clear the accumulated rubbish from the area around the footbridge from Strode road to South Clevedon playing field.
Using the boat Stewart/Simon were also able to clear the buddleia that had started to encroach, nearer to the Strode road bridge. Full trailer load of rubbish taken to the amenity centre.
It is hoped that in order to help reduce the amount of rubbish we might be able to get a bin put in place
9/10 April – Clear mud/silt from the Land Yeo/Yearling Ditch junction and remove rubble from the rear of Lesley Darks before the river is set to the summer level. Stewart
