'At the 2017 April River Clean -Up Project Bedsac - Bedford Sub Aqua Club were joined in the river by Bedford Scuba. Picture shows a mix of both groups. 12 Bedsac members turned out to assist and 6 members of Bedford Scuba which allowed us to have 8 divers in the water and the rest on the bank to handles the various things the divers were able to pull from the water. The Bedford Council truck took 3 trips to clear the ever mounting pile of bicycles (12) supermarket trolleys(2) children's' scooters(6) plus a great deal of general rubbish - a printer, mobile phones, tree branches and a part of the trunk. not forgetting the "Road Closed" sign!! This whole part of the River Clean -Up project was managed by Paul Carpenter from Bedsac who has managed it for the last 12 years.'
