River Clean Up

River Clean Up
River Clean Up

Be an everyday womble and leave no trace as we take to the river to clean up plastics, cans and other rubbish.

Our river was voted 4th best in Britain so we want to keep it that way. Become a PLANET PROTECTOR! Grab a mate, book in, select your choice of SUP, kayak, or canoe, and take to the water with us.

Getting out for a socially distanced paddle with a difference to help clean up our waterways is essential to help look after our planet and natural world. Our team generally collects rubbish every day we are out on the water to keep it looking pristine. Rich started collecting and recording plastics over a decade ago on his adventures and is passionate about making a difference.
