Summer Stream Clean!

22 Aug 2018

Help clear litter from the Letch and be rewarded with Pizza (and beer!) 

Volunteers who help clear litter from the Quorum Letch will enjoy a pizza dinner complete with refreshments. 

Despite the hard work of our litter pickers, rubbish builds in the long reeds of our letch. We're hosting an after work stream clean where you can help improve the space for local wildlife living nearby. 

Starting from 4pm until 6.30 - (you don't need to get there from 4pm you can come anytime up to 5.30)

Sign up on Eventbrite here. 

Protective Equipment will be provided but please dress in old clothes! 

Did you know that major structural changes had to be made to the design of the park in 2009 because of the water voles found to be living in the letch? The area has been classed as a protected environmental space ever since.
