Whilst treating Japanese knotweed on the River Holme last week, Simon and Ella discovered a different type of invasive species… a blow-up crocodile marooned on a rock. We decided to take it home, clean it up and give it a new job in the River Holme Connections office.

However, we have a problem with our new mascot – the croc is missing a name! We need the help of our River Holme Connections community to come up with a great name for this fabulous crocodile.

If you have thought of the perfect name for our new mascot, please submit your idea using the link below. By getting involved, you are in for a chance of winning a prize if your name is chosen.

To submit your name suggestion:


On a more serious note, we have chosen a crocodile as our new mascot because it represents the massive problem of Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS) that River Holme Connections has been treating for the past five years. Our balsam-bashing parties and Japanese knotweed treatment have been making steady progress to remove INNS from the catchment, but there is still a long way to go before the River Holme is INNS free.
