About this event:

The footpath and banks along the River Allen are littered with sweet wrappers, plastic bottles, plastic bags, food packaging and disposable coffee cups. Whilst it's unsightly, it is also dangerous to wildlife and people. Many of these items end up in the river, where they either get stuck in vegetation or are carried downstream and ultimately have a huge impact on our marine wildlife. We would like to clean up the river banks and paths along the River Allen from Walford Bridge into the town centre, going as far as we can depending on the number of people that come along and the time we have.
