A very busy morning for the Environmental Group around Canon’s Mill in Waterside. We managed to clear the bypass channel of many blockages including encroaching watercress and much debris. This will improve the flow of water and help the passage of both fish and invertebrates. The pathway alongside the river was made more accessible by cutting back overhanging branches and we also found the time to plant some yellow flag iris. They will help secure the riverbank and, once established, improve the look of the river.
