Great Baddow Ditch Clearance

On the 2nd of February 2017 volunteers form Essex County Council and Essex Fire and Rescue teamed up to clear a ditch in Great Baddow, Essex.


Work involved the maintenance and re-grading of the existing channel in conjunction with the clearing of the trash screen. The event was a complete success and the watercourse is now free of obstructions.

Thank you to all the volunteers from ECC and EFRS who attended and helped clear the ditch.
