Volunteers are set to meet at the banks of the River Waveney on Sunday as part of World Rivers Day with locals being encouraged to get involved in a bid to keep it tidy.

RiverCare- a collaboration between Anglian Water and Keep Britain Tidy- has arranged river clean-ups throughout the Eastern region to celebrate World Rivers Day and help local communities see the beautiful surroundings on our doorsteps.

RiverCare project manager Andrew Walters said: “We have a network of over 800 volunteers working on 40 local projects and World Rivers Day is a great opportunity for the people of Diss to get involved in RiverCare.

“We hope the event organised will encourage even more local people to get involved and love their river.

“We would like to thank all the community groups, councils and all our partners who are supporting events across the region.”

Diss RiverCare will be meeting at Rose Lane Bridge at 10am.

Local people can come along, take part and learn about their local waterway.

Anyone wanting to get involved is encouraged to register their interest with Robert Martyr at Robert.Martyr@keepbritaintidy.org .
