Cam Clean Up 2011

2009 Cam Clean Up
The Cam Clean Up is a popular event for local residents, community groups and the residential boating community.
This year the event will take place on Saturday 26th March, 10:00am-1:00pm, culminating with a BBQ.
Follow links below to see information about previous Cleanups:
Every year Camboaters, 'Anglian Water's RiverCare' alongside Cambridge City Council and the Cam Conservancy organise the Cam Cleanup. We invite volunteers to take part in this excellent opportunity to give this much-loved river a helping hand, by participating in the river Cleanup. The Cam Cleanup is the perfect excuse to get out there and do something for the City, as well as expressing our environmental ethic and collective love of rivers and wildlife.
The 2009 Cleanup saw more than 200 volunteers collect over 400 bags of recyclable and general rubbish from the river and its banks. Hard working grapple teams recovered a whopping 100 bikes from the riverbed and three motorised scooters were retrieved from Stourbridge Common.
This year we would like your help to recruit volunteers, Team leaders and First Aiders. Please ask volunteers to email expressing whether they wish to be a volunteer, Team leader or whether they are a qualified First Aider.
Team Leaders and First Aiders will be required to attend a briefing event at the Council Chamber, Cambridge Guildhall on, March 17th at 6.00 PM.

  1. Remind me closer to the time and I might be able to help. I think that date falls in my Easter break, so I'll either be here, in Canterbury or working at Oxbridge conferences.
