Plastic Paddlers

Flooding tends to wash bottles and other plastic waste into the river and from here it then washes down stream and into the ocean adding to the worlds plastic pollution problem.  

We are offering 8 spaces free of charge to come and paddle around Shrewsbury town loop collecting as much plastic waste as possible, When you return we will take the waste from you and recycle all recyclables.

On route you are likely to see otters, kingfishers, swans and many other river creatures.

At this time of year the river is a beautiful place with the changing of the autumn colours, this can mean its a little colder so please dress with this in mind.


The start time for this event is 1:30 pm

Date: 21st October

Spaces are limited to 8 so please book if your interested.

Fully Booked
