River Derwent Litter Pick - Join us!

2nd April 2017

Sunday 2nd of April marks the sixth annual West Cumbria Rivers Trust litter pick and we want to encourage as many people as possible, young and old, to come along and help keep our river clean.

Now you know the when, find out the other W’s to make your plans complete!

Last year our dedicated bunch of volunteers cleared a full 50 bags of rubbish from the river so let’s see if we can beat that!

If you’ve joined us before you’ll know we’ve had all sorts of weather but it’s always been fun and sociable (and very good exercise!). We will again have the fantastic support from local canoe groups who make an almost impossible task possible; they’ll be collecting precariously placed litter and will help to transport the rubbish downstream to the exit point.

We hope to see you all there and keep your fingers crossed for the sunhat and sun cream scenario, bring-on the summer!
