In July 2009 the River Crouch was polluted in the area of Memorial Park Wickford. This was found by Peter Steward who contacted Roy Hart. An enormous amount of fish and other species were killed.

Subsequently they discovered flytipped rubbish and organised a
working party to clear this debris from the river.

The River Crouch Conservation Trust was formed in July 2009. The remit of the organization is to clean up the river of rubbish and to bring the river back to a quality which will benefit all forms of wildlife, from water voles, fish to invertebrates and for the pleasure of the general public.
The Directors of the Trust are Roy Hart, Peter Steward and Steve Wastal.
