Restore our Gaywood River chalk stream to full health and beauty

Restore our Gaywood River chalk stream to full health and beauty

Sign this petition to join us in calling for the Environment Agency to take necessary action into fully investigating what has happened to our beautiful chalk stream, and then take the action needed to restore it to its former glory.

The river used to be crystal clear water and teeming with life, you could even watch trout swimming in the stream at The Walks. Now the river is murky, lifeless, and filled with fungus which suggests it’s being polluted somewhere along its length.

Why is this important?

We are proud, as local people, to be responsible stewards of this local rare chalk stream, but we need the proper authorities to do their part in giving the community back its healthy and flourishing river full of life again.
