13 September 2019. River walk with Simon Hart MP

Following our letter  to Hannah Blythyn MP pointing out the state of our counties rivers, CFF were approached by Simon Hart, MP for Carmarthen West, to set up a river walk in his constituency. We were joined by officers of Whitland Angling Club and walked the river Taf at Whitland to show him the build up of algae facilitated by agricultural pollution. CFF regularly writes to MPs, AMs and Councillors to draw attention to the state of our rivers and tributaries. We look forward to working with Whitland to raise awareness of the situation on their waters.
