The response to the SOS Save our Stream appeal that started on 31st January 2022 has been fantastic and lifted everyone’s spirits.
Thank you so much to all those who have contributed so far, and you have certainly made a difference.
Since the appeal started we have had new members join, several current members renew their membership and many kind donations.
We have raised a significant amount towards our target. This money will go to finance the services of a specialist to enable us to prepare submissions and present our case that Affinity Water needs to reduce abstraction to sustainable levels, and help get the Ivel onto the WRSE and WRE priority abstraction reduction list.
We will post the report on the Revivel website once completed and issued.
Lack of flow is the number one issue faced by the upper Ivel.
We are now in the middle of the campaign and have articles appearing in the local press. In fact, the appeal is front page news in this week’s Letchworth and Baldock Comet. The article can be seen at
We also hope to be in the Stotfold and Arlesey News Magazines soon.
Our social media pages have also been focusing on the appeal and will continue to do so.
If, thanks to everyone’s kind generosity, more than the target amount is raised, we intend to purchase water quality testing kits which our volunteers will use. We need data to enable RevIvel to take forward concerns about water quality (i.e. sewage pollution) with Anglian Water.
Water quality is the number two issue faced by the upper Ivel.
