A GROUP of community minded residents gathered together on Sunday morning (Aug 27th) to help clean up a corner of East Tilbury.
Led by wildlife photographer, Nick Lay, the group met at Gobions Park before heading down to a water course that is
Nick explained what they were doing. He said: “I’m sick to the back teeth seeing rubbish dumped in my local water course and seeing rusty old cans and shopping trolleys there.
“I’m sick of local trusts saying there going to do this and do that.. Well that never happens we decided to do it ourself.
It’s only a small body of water that holds good numbers of water vole kingfishers and lots of other wildlife.
But my main aim was to help the water vole thrive. They need our help.
“I would like to thank everyone who came and helped. It has made a great deal of difference.
Below is a film made by photographer, Geoff Smith, which highlights the problems down on the water course.
