We're delighted to announce that Groundwork and its partners have secured a grant of £16,000 from the Whitemoss Community Fund.
The money will be used to fund a project to improve access and the river habitat at Tawd Valley Park.
Peter Heberlet, Director of Land at Groundwork CLM said: “We are thrilled to be awarded this grant so that this much-needed work can take place along the River Tawd in Skelmersdale. It will give more people the chance to access this wonderful and valuable natural resource and help protect it."
“As part of River Douglas Catchment Partnership we developed the plans with partners, including West Lancashire Borough Council and the Environment Agency, and the work will greatly complement the other great work that the local ‘Love My River’ volunteers and partners are doing on the Tawd.”
The fund received a record number of applications this year and is set to share a total of £62,500 amongst a range of projects that will benefit local communities.
