Last weekend several of us had a clear-up of the Randwick tributary in torrential rain. Some people had already done some work (see here) when installing the water for the allotments so it was much quicker than expected. We came away with several bags as the photos show - the rubbish included a tent, cushions, a homemade sledge, many cans and more!

I have highlighted concerns recently regarding Himalayan Balsam - see here - well I was delighted we didn't see any in Randwick when we walked along thebrook. The plant is certainly in parts of the Ruscombe Brook and lots in other local waterways like at Stratford park, and is doing lots of damage.
