We maintain a list of projects of interest to our members. This list has been compiled with the help of communities, clubs and societies actively engaged with the river, its structures and the valley. Projects being organised by the Environment Agency, Broads Authority, Anglian Water and local authorities are included where relevant and information has been supplied.
If you feel you have a project that you could add, would meet the aims of the Trust and you could manage, please email us.
Please note that inclusion in this list does not necessarily mean it is endorsed by the Trust or has been funded/resourced. It is intended for the interest and comments of our members and partners. Links to presentations about the projects have been provided as early indicators of what the project is all about by the project sponsors. More complete plans will emerge as our Committee starts work.
