Volunteers jump in to keep Beam River flowing

26th September 2016

A group of volunteers were happy to get their feet wet last week to help keep Beam River flowing freely.

Together they contributed 32 hours of work to clear a 25 sq m area within Beam Parklands. Some 54 bags full of bulrush and litter were removed from the river, which will benefit the whole area.

Park Ranger Sonya Kavanagh said: “This part of the river now looks incredible and we couldn’t have done it without the volunteers – helping out at local green spaces is so valuable and we’re really grateful to everyone who gives up their time to make their community a cleaner and safer place for people and wildlife.”

Working with The Land Trust and Groundwork has been a great success for all of us at Sherburn who took part. They were a brilliant team and had great knowledge about the local wildlife.
