Thank you to all of the River Guardians and Community Reps that came to the Christmas outing on the 12th December. The weather was dry and sunny and we looked at the new channel at Bayfield, visited Natural Surroundings reserve, looked at some riverfly traps and then had a fantastic lunch provided by Natural Surroundings.  A very pleasant end to the year
