Following its premiere last October, "On the banks of the Beane" will be shown on Sunday 19th April 2015 at the Village Hall, Aston.

Walk the Beane

On Friday 12 October 2012 a group of concerned local people, community groups and Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland came together to walk a one-mile section of the dried up River Beane. Over 50 people attended the event, which they hope their walk will raise awareness of the river’s sad state, and support the current campaign to restore flow.
