Yellow Fish
Seen a Yellow Fish?

Four students from St John’s Marlborough have completed a ‘yellow fish’ project for the River Kennet, as part of their Duke of Edinburgh Award, to make people aware that what they tip down many roadside drains may well run into a stream or river.


Their trout shaped yellow fish has been stencilled near drains, and information cards, posters and signs were distributed in the area - to remind people that street drains are for rainwater only.  Anything else entering the river can cause pollution and kill wildlife.

This project was supported by Wiltshire Council and North Wessex Downs AONB.


The Yellow Fish campaign has been reinforcing the message 'only rain down the drain' around the UK, introduced by the Environment Agency.
