COVID-19 update

Tyne Rivers Trust considers managing the increased risk of transmission of COVID-19 of paramount importance. Following the latest government guidance, issued on 4th January 2021, where possible and safe to do so, we continue to deliver our key projects. We are constantly evaluating the situation and will keep up regular contact with our partners, funders and volunteers. All practical volunteer tasks have now been paused until it’s safe to resume.

How did the sheep cross the river?

How did the sheep cross the river?

Having farm animals in the river is not good for water quality and also erodes the river bank. A farmer, who is part of our facilitation fund (which supports our work with farmers to reduce waste from agriculture entering the river system) had a problem with sheep that had to cross a burn to get to the next field.

To get round this problem, we came up with the solution of a bridge to keep sheep out of the river. Our skilled volunteers worked to hard to build it and the results are fantastic.
