Annual Litter pick on the River Fal

A big thank you to all those who attended our fun and rewarding canoe day picking rubbish from the banks of the Fal, and to all those unrecognised others who do this every time they go out.

Litter-pick by canoe on the Fal

Of course our once a year Fal litter pick isn’t enough to keep the pristine environment of the River Fal free from rubbish. Our aim however is to win the hearts and minds of other water users and visitors to not let that crisp bag fall out of the pocket or drinks can to float away with the tide.
