BRIGG WILL MAKE THE CUT ON RIVER WEED AND LITTER
Periodic weed cutting is carried out on the Old River Ancholme in Brigg.
Can we expect another to be made in the not too distant future?
Hot weather at this time of year always results in greenery spreading across the river - the growth spurt being assisted by nutrients that find their way into the water from fields.
The weed then 'captures' litter tossed into the watercourse by uncaring people, or blown there by the wind.
Litter accumulating on the surface of the river and near its banks is unsightly. This is especially so around the County Bridge, from which we took the above picture earlier this week.
The new Ancholme Valley Way footpath and cycle track alongside the river is increasingly popular with the public, which is another good reason to keep things looking their best.
