A £1.1 million project aiming to revitalise the North East’s estuaries is coming to an end

Hellen Hornby, project manager, said: “Revitalising our estuaries has delivered nature recovery across six estuaries in the North East.

“In the Northumberland area we have delivered four different inter-tidal habitat creation projects on the Blyth and Wansbeck as well as improving footpaths and access in Butlers Wood and along the Riverside Park in Ashington.

“We’ve recruited nine young people from Northumberland on trainee employment programmes giving them the skills and experience to gain future employment in the sector. We’ve also worked with four schools and four community groups to help encourage interest and respect in our estuaries.”
