  1. After my husband speaking 2 a very lovely inspirational lady and gentleman, picking up litter around the rugby club 2day, for the Bury water meadows group. My husband was so impressed, with the loveliness of people, that we have joined the group. It is so wonderful as members of the rugby club, that other people were willing to look after that area. Also as members of Saint Edmund pacers, we use that as a running route, and will promote your actions within the club.

  2. Hello
    Just wanted to make you aware that there is a giant hog weed on the river linnet near opposite to Saxon Rise.You may already know about it, but as the river bed is completely dry and children travelling to / from Westgate school do like exploring along here, had some concerns about the risks.
    Thank you.
