Upper Ouse Pollution Update
Just to let you know what we have been doing regarding this matter - the assocation has now written letters to our local MPs (Buckingham and South Northants), the Buckingham Town Council and the riparian owners of the five venues we rent from. The main purpose of these letters is to raise the profile of the situation and also gain the maximum amount of support to ensure the EA applies the necessary resources to their recovery phase.

We also plan to meet with Buckingham Town Council early in September with the view that a 'town or district wide partnership group' may be formed. We will keep you up to date as things progress.

We are also looking for volunteers to help the council with their upcoming "River Rinses" that they carry out along the river in the Town. These will be held on the 23rd September and 6th October so members are encouraged to come along and help. Stowe sub-aqua group and the local fire brigade will also be helping out with a group of volunteers following along collecting the rubbish to put in a skip.
If you are interested in helping out then please email us at info@bdaafishing.org.uk
