The Wear Rivers Trust has received £45,000 from Northumbrian Water for a non-native invasive species project for the period up to 2020.
This money will be used to purchase 10 spray kits along with the necessary fluid. The money will also fund a 2 day training workshop for volunteers in April/May 2019. Volunteers completing the workshop will be awarded an official certificate.
Each workshop will probably be limited to 5 or 6 people.
The first training day is scheduled for the 22nd of May 2019.
If you wish to register for this course please contact Paul Atkinson at the Wear Rivers Trust.
