FIRST RIVERCARE OF 2014!
Ahead of a great summer in Bedford Borough,
the first Rivercare event of 2014 takes place on Saturday
The Kite Festival and River Festival will both
be taking place along the River Great Ouse this summer and we want
to make sure it is looking its best for the celebrations.
Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said:
“The summer of 2014 looks set to be another busy one with the Kite
Festival in June and the River Festival in July as well as various
regattas and other celebrations all based on and around the River
“The Council’s Community Rivercare events give
everyone the chance to come together and help to improve the river
and embankment in a fun and friendly atmosphere.”
Organised by Bedford Borough Council, the
first Rivercare clean up event of the year will cover the
Suspension Bridge and the surrounding green spaces and river
Bedford Sub Aqua Divers, Bedford Scuba Divers,

water removing rubbish from the surface and riverbed.
The event runs from 10am till noon and
volunteers are asked to meet at the Suspension Bridge. All
equipment will be supplied.
The event will also be supported by the John
Bunyan Community Boat who will be supplying the refreshments and
will take volunteers for a short trip along The Embankment after
