On Saturday morning, 20th April, a small group of Creek Trust members were out in the sunshine with litter pickers gathering up the rubbish around the edge of the Creek Basin and along Front Brents.
A total of 20 bags were filled with assorted bottles, drink cans and other rubbish. Other items recovered included half a settee, one wellington boot, the front part of a bike, a motorcycle tyre, a 10 foot long clothes line pole and a large piece of corrugated iron roofing. The most exciting find in the mud was the illustrated map of Crab Island, which has been missing, from its stand by the footpath for some time. Members of the Creek Trust will clean the sign and then reinstate it for the benefit of all users of the Saxon Shore Way.
