Views from the Wandle: Down Memory Lane…

On other rivers around the UK, under the auspices of the Trout in the Town project, we’re delighted to see other local ecologists and anglers starting out on the road we at the Wandle Trust began to travel all those years ago.

And with the onward march of technology, they’re using t’interweb to launch awareness of their efforts too.

On South Yorkshire’s urban River Don, Sheffield’s Partnership for Rivers in Town Environments (SPRITE) has just run its first community cleanup – complete with YouTube coverage and so-laid-back-it’s-horizontal voiceover from the Wild Trout Trust‘s Paul Gaskell…

… whilst over in East Lancashire Colne Water Angling Club and the Friends of Greenfield are starting their own progamme of river cleanups and education.

Quite brings a reminiscent tear to our eye, so it does!

A big well done to everyone else involved with Trout in the Town so far, and long may their successes continue.
