This received from Mike Morris, Severn Rivers Trust:
YOUR RIVERS NEED YOU!!!
The Severn Uplands Partnership is hosting a public workshop about the Severn Uplands Catchment. Do you live, work or play within the area in the map attached? Come and have your say about how we manage it, play in it, and live in it.
The discussions will influence the Severn from its source on Pumlumon down to Shrewsbury and all the rivers that flow into it in Wales such as the Afon Vyrnwy, Afon Rhiew, Afon Tanat and Afon Mule and rivers in England such as the Rea Brook and its tributaries.
The event will be held on Wednesday 12th March at Welshpool Livestock Market, Buttington Cross, Welshpool, SY21 8SR
From 10am to 3pm
Tea and Coffee and lunch will be provided
We want to explore how we can work together locally to better understand:
Why is the Severn Uplands important for wildlife, people and the local economy?
What can be improved to benefit local people, visitors, wildlife, water and business?
What can we do together to make the Severn Uplands better?
The workshop is the ideal way to get your views across to decision makers to influence future plans, in particular the forthcoming River Basin Management Plan, about how we manage the entire catchment to the benefit of everyone.
Do you have an interest in flooding, water quality, angling, farming, walking, photography, art, canoeing, wildlife, tourism, forestry, planning, green infrastructure, climate change, education, the great outdoors or anything else? Then your say is important. Please pass this invitation to anyone who might be interested. Let you neighbours, colleagues and friends know.
