Ribble Rivers Trust has taken, and continues to take a significant number of actions in response to the COVID 19 Pandemic. We have effectively shut our office, staff are working from home and implemented all procedures as required by the Government.
Where possible and safe to do so, our work continues and we have been able to successfully complete many important fish passage and river conservation project this year. This includes:
- The removal of Samlesbury weir on the Ribble near Brockholes
- A new fish-pass on the river Darwen near Preston
- Two fish passes in the Douglas catchment
- Our fantastic headline project to create a Nature Reserve and fish-pass at Primrose Lodge in Clitheroe, to name but a few!
- We have also re-started our volunteering activities with strict adherence to government guidelines,
- We are back working in schools to teach children about rivers and nature
- Our staff have been busily making a huge amount of educational material which is available online via our social media ages. Check it out!
We also continue with the Lancashire Woodland Connect campaign to increase woodland across Lancashire and the tree planting season is nearly upon us! Why not get involved?
Managing the risk and spread of COVID-19 is of paramount importance at this time. All our work will strictly adhere to the Government’s advice, observing social distancing and we continue to closely monitor the guidance and respond swiftly and accordingly.
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 your support.
Thank you for your understanding,
Ribble Rivers Trust
