Schoolgirl,10, calls for help in Loudwater river cleanup
A DISGRUNTLED ten-year-old is calling for help from the community after becoming fed up with the amount of litter in the river near her house.
Camilla Duff, who spends half her time living in Loudwater, said she was sick of seeing bottles, bags and other rubbish in and around the Wye, which flows through the village.
So the enterprising schoolgirl decided to take matters into her own hands, and is looking for help from villagers in her bid to clean up the river next month.
"I walk to the shop almost every day and have to pass the river on the way," she said.
"There’s so much rubbish in the river around there and it really annoys me. It’s getting really bad.
"It seems like no one else is going to do anything about it so I decided I was going to, and I’m trying to get the whole village involved in a litter pick."
Of her own accord, Camilla got in touch with Bucks County Council which is responsible for the stretch and gained their permission for the clean up.
And she is calling for the community to bring gloves and a bin bag to help her in the litter pick on September 22 on the Wye stretch from Station Road to the park adjacent to Snakeley Close.
