Yesterday afternoon Belinda and I attended the 'Celebration of the Declaration of the Rights of the River Wensum' (what a snappy title!) event held in Wensum Park in Norwich.
It was an event organised by the Stop the Wensum Link and included some really inspirational speakers on subjects such as the biodiversity of chalk streams (of which the Wensum is one of only 260 in the world), an artists view of rivers, conservation of the Wensum and it's catchment and then a rousing call to arms by Nick Acheson before a ceremony to 'bless the river'. All on a glorious sunny afternoon with a great turnout, stalls and coffee! I even snuck off to find a small patch of Perfoliate Alexanders in a wild corner of the park.
