DOES YOUR FARM, LAND OR GARDEN BORDER THE LETCOMBE BROOK?

DOES YOUR FARM, LAND OR GARDEN BORDER THE LETCOMBE BROOK?


IF SO, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU! The Letcombe Brook Project (LBP) is a registered charity set up to look after our precious brook and make it a better place for wildlife and people.

The Brook is one of only 225 chalk streams in the world and supports a range of protected species such as brown trout, bullhead, otter and water voles. The Brook faces a number of serious threats, including from pollution, non-native species, physical modification, over-abstraction of water, climate change and population growth in our local area.

LBP has set up a Riparian Owners' Group for local residents who are lucky enough to live next to the Brook. Benefits of membership, which is free of charge, include:

• Keeping you informed and updated about issues affecting the Brook, any changes in legislation, pollution issues, flood issues, LBP activities in and around the Brook etc.

• Advice on issues of relevance to you, including flood risk, wildlife-friendly gardening, sedimentation, your legal obligations as a riparian owner, etc

• Newsletters – 2 each year updating you on LBP activities and future plans

• Invitations to all our community events

Please contact Mark Bradfield, LBP Project Officer, on info@letcombebrook.org.uk for more information.
