Our Haul
Our Haul

On Thursday 26th November, the Welland Rivers Trust and the Market Harborough Environment Group combined efforts to clean up the River Welland as it runs through Market Harborough.

In 1 1/2 hours, approximately 20 volunteers managed to remove 4 shopping trollies, 10 bin bags of rubbish, 3 footballs, a space heater, and half a skateboard.

We also used water quality testing kits to measure the levels of pollution in the river, and were happy to find very clean water running through the river.

Well done everyone who helped. For those interested in helping in the future, the next river clean up will be in Market Harborough on November 30th, starting at 1.30 pm.
