Hello Trent catchment resident!

The River Trent catchment is one of the largest in England. It takes water from a huge area – from towns and cities, to moors and farmland.

How we look after this landscape impacts the river itself. We are working towards creating a catchment with a rich tapestry of habitats, able to support livelihoods and wildlife.

Trent Rivers Trust

Here at The Trent Rivers Trust we think the River Trent is great – of course we

do! It attracts people from all over the country to come and enjoy it for wildlife and recreation – but we think it could be much better.

The Lower Trent and Erewash Catchment Partnership is hosted by The Trent Rivers Trust who work alongside various partners and the local communities to improve, restore and protect this valuable landscape.

We’re contacting you today to find out how you feel about living so close to the River Trent – whether that’s a good thing, or a bad thing?

We would love to hear your opinions on a few questions we’ve listed below:
