How can an organisation who proclaim to be guardians of the environment chose to ignore incidents like this. Even if they do not think they are responsible for this particular reen they could have taken this material out of the water course............
Two weeks after reporting this fly tipping in a water course to NRW no action had been taken other than a visit to the site and them saying they are not responsible for the care of that reen. Heavy rain and the oil & paint started to leach into the water ways..........We went down with the trailer and cleared it best we could in an hour............... They may not be responsible for the care of the reen but they do proclaim to be guardians of the environment. something clearl
A new project for the lockdown winter months is coracle making. Some of our lave net fishermen are able to make baskets and fish traps these skills are being put to use on Coracles. Hopefully to be used in the spring........... The Willow and hazel are gathered from the Gwent levels. This is a completed frame.
Happy new year to all who follow our lives built around the Lave net fishing & Severn estuary. Lets hope that 2021 brings positive news on all fronts especially the defeat of the Corvid pandemic . Stay safe all . Happy new year from all at Black rock lave net heritage fishery.
Crossing the Gwent levels on his way to the sea wall Martin spotted two tyres next to a Reen just outside the Village of Witson . (30th Dec ) He stopped intending to pick these up and to his amazement came across this .........around 40-50 dumped tyres down in the reen . They were not there 2 days earlier. The incident was reported to the relevant authority . Some folk just do not give a dam .
