As you may know, the Cam Cleanup takes place annually, it is a popular event for local residents, community groups and the residential boating community.
This year the event will take place on Saturday 26th March, 10:00am-1:00pm, culminating with a BBQ.
Please follow links below to see information about previous Cleanups:
The River Cam meanders its way 12 miles from Granchester Meadows to Bottisham lock. Every year Camboaters, ‘Anglian Water’s RiverCare’ alongside Cambridge City Council and the Cam Conservancy organise the Cam Cleanup. Volunteers are invited to take part in this excellent opportunity to give this much-loved river a helping hand, by participating in the river Cleanup. The Cam Cleanup is the perfect excuse to get out there and do something for our fine City, as well as expressing our environmental ethic and collective love of rivers and wildlife.
The 2009 Cleanup saw more than 200 volunteers collect over 400 bags of recyclable and general rubbish from the river and its banks. Hard working grapple teams recovered a whopping 100 bikes from the riverbed and three motorised scooters were retrieved from Stourbridge Common.
This year we would like your help with the Cleanup and to recruit volunteers, Team leaders and First Aiders for the Midsummer Common and Stourbridge Common areas. Can you please circulate this letter amongst your members? In the past only 30 volunteers (including, Team leaders and First Aiders) were required to litter pick the Midsummer Common and Stourbridge Common areas. Please ask volunteers to email firstname.lastname@example.org expressing whether they wish to be a volunteer, Team leader or whether they are a qualified First Aider.
Team Leaders and First Aiders will be required to attend a briefing event at the Council Chamber, Cambridge Guildhall on, March 17th at 6.00 PM.
