Warwickshire WI put their best foot forward for clean rivers

Leamington Editorial 21st Mar, 2024   0

NATURE-loving members of the WI in Warwickshire are putting their best foot forward for clean rivers.

Warwickshire Federation of Women’s Institutes is raising awareness of the WI’s national campaign to clear up local waterways, by holding a walk through Jephson Gardens in Leamington on Saturday (March 23) at 10.30am.

The aim is to highlight how people can all be more involved in pressing local water companies and councils to provide safe, clean water.

In May last year, the WI passed a resolution at its annual meeting to urge members, the public, local authorities and the government to work together to protect rivers for people and wildlife.

A WI spokesperson said: “Water quality in our rivers is shameful. We’re doing what the WI does best – rolling our sleeves up and taking action – and having fun while we’re at it

“We want to see an end to pollution of our rivers so that we can clear up our waters for our health and well-being, our environment, and to safeguard them for the future.”
