Whoosh Explore Canoe Club started on its New Years Resolution a couple of days early by collecting 60 plastic bottles out of the River Stort on th 27th December. We are looking to invite the Independent to get behind our campaign to get the River Stort Clear of litter over 2019. Join us in our campaign to clear the river as well as get fit on each weekend from Redricks lakes and help us improve by paddling to protect the river environment. We have boats and equipment which has been supported by Greggs and Tescos to help us collect rubbish, we just now need some volunteers to help us.
