Fantastic news! The Heritage Lottery Fund have granted us £1.2million towards our Living Heritage of the River Don project.
Our project will help fish move up the River Don by creating fish passage solutions on the weirs which currently obstruct them. This will allow salmonid species to get as far as Sheffield for the first time in 200 years. We will also be signposting a trail from Doncaster to Sheffield along the river and canal as well as lots of stuff for people to get involved with e.g. work days along the river, training, paid work placements, schools activities etc
To say we are thrilled is an understatement, keep watching this space to see how the project progresses.
