    The environmental champion Sean Ready is set to be honoured in Thetford on Saturday (11th November 2023).

    After the advocate and activist died unexpectedly exactly a year ago, Thetford Town Council took the decision to honour him by dedicating the newly created fish pass near Nun’s Bridges in Sean’s memory.

    Sean went on his own journey to improve his mental health by collecting rubbish on the river to founding the Thetford River Group, a dedicated team of volunteers who took turns removing rubbish and completing important environmental monitoring activities. When Sean was unable to get onto the river, due to either low or high-water levels, he could be found supporting community litter picks on land.

    Councillor Terry Jermy, Chairman of the Council’s Amenities Committee said: “Sean was a regular attendee at our Amenities Committee meetings, lobbying us to do whatever we could to help and improve Thetford’s River network.”

    “Sean became synonymous with the river and a real advocate for it. In what was to be the last year of his life, he became particularly passionate about the need for the fish pass to be constructed on the River Thet where a breach had occurred. That structure is now complete, and I am delighted the Council agreed with my suggestion to dedicate it to Sean’s memory, an entirely fitting tribute to someone who did so much for Thetford and its environment.”

    Thetford Mayor Stuart Wright will be unveiling a memorial plaque at 1pm on Saturday 11th November 2023 at the fish pass site, near Ford Meadow.

    All are invited to attend.
