SEVERN TRENT VOLUNTEERING
We have been working with volunteers from Severn Trent to improve the river environment as part of their corporate volunteering programme open to all employees.
So far, Severn Trent volunteers have worked with us to:
- Thin trees along the brooks around Huthwaite and Alfreton to let in more light for wildlife such as water voles and kingfishers
- Clear invasive Himalayan Balsam from Coppice Brook in Belper and from the River Mease
- Clear scrub at Great Glen Wild Space in Leicestershire to enhance the area for local communities
We are looking forward to many more exciting volunteering days where Severn Trent employees will work with us across the Trent catchment to make a difference for rivers.
