IWA Avon & Wiltshire Branch Clean Up Bank of the River Avon

Issue date: 16th May 2013

Members of IWA Avon & Wiltshire Branch have cleaned the bank of the Bristol Avon on both sides from Swineford weir stream upstream for about quarter of a mile. 

Most of the rubbish was poly bags and sewage related debris caused by the combined sewer overflows from Bath in this winter’s floods. Two large bags of rubbish were cut off the trees and brambles.

The work was carried out from a dinghy and several walkers and boaters cheered when they saw the efforts being undertaken.
