Fish pass planting

In partnership with Sheffield City Council, Friends of Millhouses Park, River Stewardship Company, Marks and Spencer staff and BTCV we have started the first of two sessions of planting for the new fish pass on 30th and 31st March 2010.

It was a huge success despite two days of atrocious weather, mud that sucked you under if you stood still long enough and bitterly cold winds. We were asked to add 6 volunteers each day and in all 20 FofMP members (plus one chocolate lolly face tiny volunteer) turned up to dig, plant of support – fantastic.

The camaraderie on both days was very good and everyone involved went home with a sense of achievement in a job well done. As you all walk through the park please keep an on it to ensure it all become established. I have more photos so do ask if you would like them.

This is now not just any Fish Pass, this is now a Marks and Spencer Fish Pass!
