Celebrating our 10th anniversary!
Vitacress Conservation Trust 2016 Chalk Stream Headwaters Forum – 25 November
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the Chalk Stream Headwaters Forum, we were delighted to welcome our founding Patron, Lord Selborne, to Chair the event.
Gail Taylor, the Chair of the Vitacress Conservation Trust, took the opportunity to look back at the highlights of the Vitacress Trust over the last 10 years, reviewing previous Forums, Environment Lectures, research and other sponsored projects.
Pete Shaw and Graham Roberts, respective Chairs, updated the delegates on progress made through the Bourne Rivulet and Upper Itchen Initiatives.
Our guest speakers were John Fawell, who focused on the issues surrounding water quality, water resources and sustainable solutions, and Fran Davies, who gave an overview on Natural England’s work on chalk streams and conservation strategy.
The Open Forum provided a platform for some lively debate!
