Rescue Our Rivers: Petition hand-in to No.10 Downing Street

On September 21st, we visited No.10 with Team Water UK to hand over the ‘Rescue our Rivers’ petition to parliament. 

With over 106,000 of your signatures, we are sending a very clear message: – the public will be putting water quality as a TOP voting issue ahead of the election.

A huge thank you to all who signed, shared and supported our petition, calling for all political parties to save our rivers and waterways before it’s too late.
