The River Cray is not for Scrap it’s our Nature!
It was wonderful to be joined by old faces (returning volunteers) when they and our regular team quite spectacularly removed the car parts from the river at Crayford last Friday, a huge well done to you all (Thanks to Ron for the images, these tell the story of the day).
It is very sad that some appear to be willing to dump these parts into our rivers. Our volunteers continue to give their time to clean the rivers with the message that this behaviour is not acceptable and more should be done to prevent it.
