Volunteer works - installing an otter holt at Rothley Lakes
Hope that you can make it!
Trout eggs have hatched!
Our Trout in the Classroom work entered an exciting phase as the little brown trout came into being...! Well done to Ella for her hard work in getting to this stage.
Changes to the Rivers Trust Team
We're delighted to welcome 4 new Trustees to the team. Graham Hodgson, James Jackson, Angus Collingwood-Cameron and Shaun Renwick will bring a wealth of experience and exterise to the Trust! The core delivery team of Ella Vogel, George Dodds and Pete Kerr remains unchanged, with John Hogger as Chairman .
Blyth/Pont River Restoration
We have started work on a Feasibility study for an ambitious river restoration project with partners on the Blyth and Pont catchment. The rivers and streams in the catchment have suffered from previous dredging and straightening activity and there is much to be done if funding can be secured. A draft report will be produced by the end of March 2014.
Catchment Based Approach
The Northumberland Rivers Trust and the Tyne Rivers Trust held a joint forum event with key partners on 23rd January at 9.30 at Kirkley Hall. There was a great turn-out, with roughly 50 people helping us identify key issues and ideas for action. Thanks very much for your support. We will digest the finding and suggest some next steps soon.
