Essex Rivers Hub

Volunteers from the Friends of Hoppit Mead LNR have been working hard to keep the local nature reserve looking great; this group is run by Amanda Turburville from Braintree District council. Recently they cleared the river of rubbish in the Reserve along the River Brain between London Road and Notley Road; road signs, tyres, a stool and a large barrier as well as lots of plastic that was pulled out of the river.


We are really happy to say that we will now be working with this group as the volunteers have signed up to the river wardens project. The river will now be regularly surveyed with all of the data being used by our records office. We also hope to work together to continue with the great work they have already been doing tackling the Himalayan Balsam and potentially bigger projects in the future.

If you are part of a similar group and would like to partner with us then please get in touch!
