About Us

The Trust is a relatively new organisation that was created in July 2011.  Our aim is to work with others to improve and protect the rivers and streams of Northumberland.  The waterbodies we will focus on are those flowing into the North Sea, North of the Tyne and South of the Tweed. 

We are created as a Company Limited by Guarantee (Company number 7713172) and are also a Registered Charity (Charity number 1145188)


Who is involved?

Pete Kerr is the Director of the Trust, and works with the NRT 2 days a week. Pete has now left the Environment Agency  to focus on the NRT and his own design-build company (www.riverworksdesignandbuild.co.uk).
