Hopes high that ideas will flood in for river funding bid

An appeal has gone out to volunteers to get involved in a project to share ideas and experiences of what makes the catchment area of the River Rye special and shape a bid for conservation funding.

The North York Moors National Park Authority is working with the Rye Catchment Partnership to look at developing an application to secure funding. Anyone interested is invited to attend one of two 7pm meetings on Wednesday 20 April at Chop Gate village hall and Thursday 28 April at Nunnington village hall

Tom Stephenson, of the national park authority said: “The purpose of these workshops is to discuss how the River Rye and the tributaries that feed into it can be enhanced for the benefit of heritage, the natural environment and local people so we can make a lasting difference to the river for future generations.”

Attendees will be able to gain insight into what the Rye Catchment Landscape Partnership will do and share their ideas and memories of the river that will help shape the lottery fund application.

Tom added: “These meetings are a great way for people to get together to share their ideas for the Rye and their personal experiences about what makes it so special.

"We’d be particularly interested in any old photographs or objects related to the river that people could bring along to show during the evening.”

Anyone interested in attending is asked to email or telephone Tom Stephenson at  or 01439 772700.
