Dear All
Camboaters is a vibrant and diverse residential boating community moored along the river Cam in Cambridge. The river meanders its way 12 miles from Granchester Meadows to Bottisham lock. Every year Camboaters, 'Anglian Water's RiverCare' alongside Cambridge City Council and the Cam Conservancy organise the Great Cam Clean Up. They invite you to take part in this most excellent opportunity to give this much-loved river a helping hand, by participating in a river clean up. The Great Cam Clean Up is the perfect excuse to get out there and do something for our fine City, as well as expressing your environmental ethic and collective love of rivers and wildlife. 

This year the 5th Great Cam Clean Up will officially be opened by The Mayor of Cambridge, Councillor Mike Dixon and will take place on Saturday the 25th of April, commencing at 10:00am at The Fort St George, Midsummer Common and winding up with a Barbeque for all volunteers. 

Last year more than 170 volunteers collected 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 event gets bigger and better every year, we look forward to welcoming you all once again but due to demand volunteers are asked to register early to avoid disappointment. 

If you wish to help, can assist in recruiting volunteers or provide food or equipment contact me, details below, please also let me know if you are a qualified First Aider. 

Camboaters particularly welcomes other local organisations to join in this event and build upon the success achieved in the past 4 years. 

To register please email camcleanup at camboaters.co.uk or to find out more about the organisation, go to the Camboaters website www.camboaters.co.uk or contact Luther on 07980 621 761
