On Sunday 9 September SusWoT cleaners had their celebratory picnic by the Trym.
After the Litter Picks and River Cleans the lower reaches of the Trym are pretty clear of litter and the water looks clear, but there is still not much life and no otters.
About 120 person hours of effort were expended on cleaning the area from the Blaise car park on the Dingle to the Mill House pub. During this time about 2 tonnes of rubbish have been extracted by SusWoTters and then taken away by Bristol Waste. This did include a kitchen sink!
SusWoT are looking to work with Friends of Blaise and Friends of Badock’s to see if they can improve the quality of wildlife in the Trym area from Badock’s Wood to the confluence of the Trym with the Avon.
If you would like to help SusWoT with its litter and river work please be in touch, firstname.lastname@example.org.
