Last weekend saw an unprecedented level of river activity in Chelmsford. With floods, bridge collapses, droughts, building works, tree planting, fishing and canoeing in the centre of town…
Ok, so it was all in miniature and safely contained within our stream table demonstration!
It was great to be part of the River Celebration day organised by the @ChelmsfordYMCA #duckrace #quackquack! Thank you to everyone who got stuck in and not a little messy, here’s a selection of pictures from the day.
…Can we flood it now??
Oooh, it’s the perfect stream…
Thanks to funders WaterCAP Taskforce & The Rivers Trust
Serious river management from trustee Matt Holden
Growing up with water, or not as the case may be Matt Holden!
River managers of the future, we hope!
Learning about river bugs with Jenny & Rebecca from the environment Agency.
Everyone had a go!
The army arrive and go straight for heavy engineering!
Many hands…exactly like the real thing!
