Bankside management in a sunny Ladywell Fields

On a bright and sunny Tuesday our volunteers headed to Ladywell Fields for a dip in the river.  There was quite a lot to do, so some donned waders and cleared the Ravensboune of litter, while others concentrated on bankside management.  Between the 4 of them the volunteers in the river pulled out 6 bags of rubbish in just a few hours.  The volunteers working on the banksides were clearing nettles to allow other plants to grow.  This will lead to more diverse flora along the river.
