Procurement and Contract Opportunities

Ribble Rivers Trust delivers a wide range of activities that require external assistance, from civil engineering for the construction of fish passes, to publicity and promotion activities for awareness raising campaigns.  In procuring our external works we endeavor to achieve best value in all its procurement activity. Best value is measured in terms of quality, reliability, fitness for purpose, reputation, “after sales” support, and ethical considerations as well as price.

As part of this we have a Quantitative, Qualitative and Statutory Framework that we employ.  As part of this from time to time contract opportunities to advertise, these opportunities will be listed below, please click the appropriate link to view further information about contract opportunities.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) guidance- please read

Some Ribble Rivers Trust staff are now working from home. If you wish to speak to a specific member of staff and you know their mobile phone number or email address please contact them in this way. Otherwise please contact us in the usual way.

Volunteer event cancellations

Dear volunteers,

It is with regret that we announce that we are postponing all volunteer activity with Ribble Rivers Trust. We know there are many benefits to volunteering, including the positive boost to mental and physical health, the chance to meet others and contribute positively to your local area. However, given the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the most recent Government advice – asking everybody in the UK to stay at home and only go out for essentials such as food and medicine – we feel that continuing to include volunteers in the limited work we are able to do now would put people at unnecessary risk and be irresponsible. We all want to improve and protect our environment and rivers, but to do that we need to stay healthy and this must be our priority for the time being. We will continue to keep you up to date with the work we are able to do and will organise new volunteer days as soon as we possibly can. Please stay connected with us over the coming weeks and keep yourselves safe and well.

Refer to gov.uk/coronavirus for up to date information and guidance.

We will come through this and our environment and rivers will still need you, let’s make sure we’re all ready for it when the time comes.

Yours faithfully,

Jack Spees.
