CRIMPing in Quarriers

The first CRIMP workshop of 2014 was held in Quarriers Village on Saturday 26th April. New eager CRIMPers attended from Bridge of Weir (River) Angling Club, Duncanrig Secondary School,  Hollybrook Academy, Strathgryfe Angling Association and Whitelee Windfarm Countryside Ranger Service. We were happy to welcome our first lot of secondary school teachers to CRIMP and are looking forward to developing the project in line with the Curriculum for Excellence. All the groups have shown a keen interest in covering more sites on the Clyde catchment. Wider coverage – geographically and over time – makes it more likely that pollution incidents will be picked up. Many thanks to Tom Coy and Emma Pitman from SEPA who assisted with the workshop. We’re looking forward to the follow-up days with all the groups, when we’ll select and risk assess sites before starting sampling on a monthly basis!
