Flempton Bridge Brash and Tree Clearing-January 18th 2020

In 2019 the RLCP was part of the Brecks Fen Edge & Rivers Landscape Partnership (BFER) awarded money by the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver river restoration work, path and access improvements along the River Lark.

On Saturday the 18th January the first work party took place downstream of Flempton Bridge, hosted by the Fornhams Group of the RLCP.

Volunteers from throughout the catchment cleared brush, trimmed and felled trees along the bank and in the river. The materials collected and processed will be used to make brash bundles at later work parties. These will be used to construct revetments that protect the river banks and create a more natural channel.

Many thanks to The Suffolk Wildlife Trust for their support and to all the volunteers that spent a beautiful day helping to make the River Lark better.
