Work Party Cancelled

The Riverkeeper has cancelled the River Piddle work party due to the un-safe water levels and predicted poor weather forecast……. We will set another date once this wet spell is over.

More Flooding

After yesterdays downpour the River Frome is up and coloured. Today I joined the River Keeper (John Aplin) on his rounds.

It is amazing to see so much water about, but with the aquifers already full there is only one place the rain can go – downstream!!!

River Cerne Work Party

Saturdays work party on the River Cerne was held in glorious warm November sunshine, totally the opposite of the forecast.

We had a great morning clearing one or two fallen trees and blockages, thank you to Alan and Gary for coming out to help.

Please keep an eye on the DFC website for future work parties.
