Save Our River campaign – Update

In 2013, the Loddon & District Business Association spearheaded a campaign for the urgent dredging of the River Chet from Hardley Flood to Loddon Staithe by the Broads Authority.

We organised a 1000- strong petition within the community and attracted media interest from BBC Radio Norfolk, The EDP, Beccles and Bungay Journal and had huge support within social media, such as Facebook and Twitter.

The campaign was successful and the river was ‘full width’ channel dredged in February 2014, which retains this vital link for the community, which is also so essential for local businesses. More press information is available here.
