Why some rubbish such a natural treasure is a mystery to me. Our clean-up morning removed successfully 5 large bags of rubbish and also some unusual items such as a car front bumper, large piece of carpet, broken washing basket and milk crate as well as the usual array of plastic bottles, fish bait bags and other pieces of non-degradable plastic. We filled one bag with recyclables. Despite the several flood events and rain that would have washed cigarette butts into the river there were over 60 - mostly at park entrance and near the toilets. Bags had also become entangled in tree branches overhanging the river - caught there in higher flood waters.
