A volunteer group which helps maintain the Land Yeo river is appealing for younger members.

The Land Yeo Friends has helped look after the river, which flows through Clevedon, for almost 20 years.

But new blood is needed to take the group forward. The group is , especially keen to hear from people who have worked with environmental organisations or councils.

A spokesman said: “Many of the volunteers are inevitably getting older and we would like to meet up with younger men and women who would be interested to learn both the skills of running the group, which involves a bi-monthly meeting held at the Curzon cinema, and the actual hands-on work in and on the river.

“The river work involves a boat and working from the riverbank.”

Anyone interested in volunteering can attend the group’s annual meeting at 7.30pm on September 6 at the Curzon, in Old Church Road, or click here.
