Tim Jacklin represented the Wild Trout Trust at the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) Norfolk Awards in Norwich on 17th November. The river habitat project completed at Hunworth on the River Glaven in August 2010 was amongst 18 winners of awards for projects that have protected or enhanced the beauty, tranquillity and diversity of the Norfolk countryside or coastline.
Chair of Judges, Martin Walton, highlighted the partnership project which involved the Stody Estate (landowner), River Glaven Conservation Group, Environment Agency, Prof. Richard Hey, Wild Trout Trust, CEFAS and studies by students at University College London. Details of the project have previously been published in the Wild Trout Trust newsletter.
In his address, CPRE National President, Bill Bryson, praised all the award recipients for their positive contributions to the Norfolk countryside and coastline. More details of the awards can be found on the CPRE Norfolk website.
