River Worth Friends team up with Keighley Big Local and Aire Rivers Trust for major project to improve the River Worth from Keighley up to Haworth.
Most people know River Worth Friends for litter picking and pulling rubbish out of the river but we have always been keen to do more than that, especially in two main areas:
We have secured generous funding from Keighley Big Local, Keighley Towns Fund and the Environment Agency. We have plenty of ideas for how we would like to make the river a better place; improving the river habitat, resurfacing the footpaths, way marking and providing information about its heritage and natural history are just a few. But we really want the project to come from the people who live and work alongside the river, that’s why we have organised a number of events for you to say how together we can make the river better.
This restoration project could transform how we relate to the Worth and it's tributaries, come along to one of these events if you want to have a say about how this will be. It would be great to meet you and hear your views.
