Back in the Trym

Back in the Trym

Alex with some of the rubbish collected from the Trym on Sunday, the three tyres found dumped in the woods were left near the Mill House Pub. The black sacks in the picture were flytipping

After a month clearing litter from the streets of Westbury-on-Trym SusWoT went back to clearing the river Trym on Sunday. 11 people worked from 11am to 1:00 pm clearing the Trym river and removing litter from its surrounds. About 16 bags of rubbish were removed but the best find from the river was a scooter found by George. It was very deeply buried in mud but eventually George removed it single handed. His dedication was so great he went home to get a spade to dig it out with.

Liz always pleased to see a scooter pulled from the depths of the Trym

On Sunday the Trym between the Mill House Pub and the car park at the bottom of Blaise was tackled. Most of the accessible Trym has now been done but there are still sections of Hazel Brook that need to be cleared. Hazel Brook is a tributary of the Trym that runs from Cribbs Causeway, through Henbury, joining the Trym in Blaise Castle Estate.
