Litter. That's Rubbish!

LET'S Put Litter in its place

NoreVision In Action - Litter Picks

The Nore Vision Project is a community development Biodiversity programme. It is a locally led initiative, working with 6 localities across the catchment areas along the river Nore.

It aims to promote awareness of the importance of the River Nore for us, the 110,000 residents on the catchment, our children and the generations to come.

The project also aims to animate local working groups to initiate their own projects on the river and via the New River Nore Trust, apply for community based funding to become gatekeepers of their section of the River or it’s tributaries.

This project is an opportunity for everyone to be recognised and rewarded for delivering environmental benefits and use the new Nore River Trust.
