Groundwork Suffolk and the Environment Agency are working together to raise awareness of pollution in Saxmundham, Framlingham, and Halesworth.
What the project involved
During the project residents, businesses, and schools in the towns received information and practical advice on how to reduce environmental pollution. Together we can make a difference! This project began in 2018 but many activities are still ongoing.
Activities during the project
There were a series of events, workshops, and sessions with businesses, community organisations and schools taking place in the three towns. Many local people were engaged to discuss the Yellow Fish Campaign and what people could do to help improve their local water environment.
Businesses helped promote the campaign by displaying posters and window stickers on their premises.
Yellow Fish stencils were added to many surface water drains in the three towns to grab the attention of local people to find out more and make people think before letting anything but rain water enter these drains. Residents in the areas were also visited so they were made aware of the campaign and to ensure as many people as possible knew what Yellow Fish meant.
