Leicester Litter Picking on the River Soar

The problem

Every year tonnes of rubbish is thrown, dumped or finds its way into the River Soar. As well as being a hazard to our wildlife it also completely ruins the place spoiling what should be a pleasant place for people to come and enjoy, whether it’s a canal boat trip, going canoeing or kayaking, or even a walk along the river side.

Our aim

We meet up once every month and spend half a day paddling up the river and picking up as much rubbish as we can in that time. We try to keep the river as clean as we can get it. We also look to clean the banks and tow paths too so we do welcome people who want to walk along side of the river as much as we welcome people to paddle.

What's in it for you?

Well to start off with there is an amazing feeling of satisfaction when you can look back at the positive impact you’ve made on the environment. Sometimes we literally pull out a truck load of rubbish in one go, which really makes you feel like you’re making a difference to the river environment.

It is also a good chance to go do some free canoeing along with meeting new people making new friends with like minded individuals.
