About the site

It’s World Rivers Day on 26th September 2021 so why not join us at one of our previous restoration sites. This beautiful part of the Waithe beck chalk stream needs a little helping hand to keep it flowing. In the summer months the in-stream plants can impede the flow so we’re going to be removing some to keep it flowing. There can also be a need to thin out the willow that shoots up by the stream and can quickly over-shades certain areas.
