Eleven representatives from the partners working across the Lea Catchment recently attended training to edit the catchment website.
This means that more individuals and organisations working together to improve the catchment, can now directly add news, projects and other information to the website. The training, delivered by Chris Dee from Garganey Consulting who designed the website, was funded by the Environment Agency and hosted by Affinity Water at their Hatfield headquarters. Organised by Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust, representatives included Friends of the Mimram, the River Beane Restoration Association, Hertfordshire Countryside Management Service, Lea Valley Regional Park, and a volunteer River Champion, as well as Affinity Water and the Environment Agency. Sharing the responsibility and opportunity for adding content to the website will improve the visibility of the work of catchment partners and encourage others to join partnerships working to improve the water environment for people and wildlife.
