Love Your Magnificent Severn Campaign 2019
It won’t have come to any surprise that our Love your Magnificent Severn river trip was cancelled this June. The aim of the trip was to collect as much litter as possible whilst spreading awareness of water pollution in our rivers. Unfortunately, foul weather and rapidly deteriorating river conditions meant safety to our volunteers and crew were at high risk.
However, no matter how dismal the weather, volunteers and crew members instead dedicated their time into a mass litter pick along the river banks of the Severn and Reabrook collecting over 20 bags of rubbish! Plastic wrappers, bottles and cigarette butts were some of the most prevalent pieces of litter found. We also held a litter picking event at Whittington castle before finishing our campaign at Pam’s Pools where we showed visitors some of the amazing wildlife found in our rivers.
