It's Our Mersey Rivers Week ! 30 June to 6 July

Mersey Rivers Trust’s annual “Mersey Rivers Week” returns this coming week running from Sunday 30 June to Saturday 6 July across Merseyside, Greater Manchester and Cheshire.

The week-long event celebrates the environment, wildlife and recreational benefits of the rivers that form the River Mersey. From the Peak District to the Mersey Estuary, there are over 1,000km of river which are home to a wide range of wildlife, including fish, insects and birds. Local communities can also enjoy access to these rivers for recreation, health and well-being.  Our FREE events are listed below:

John Sanders, co-Director at the Mersey Rivers Trust commented: “Our Mersey Rivers Week highlights how community volunteers are supporting us to improve the health of their local rivers for people and wildlife.  This work is helping to increase the number of fish, insects, birds and other wildlife in our rivers, but there is much more we still need to do to further improve the river environment.

“One of our key aims is to work with local communities to enhance public access to rivers so more people can enjoy the recreation, health and well-being benefits of spending time next to a river. On Saturday 6th July, we are encouraging the public to go for a walk or ride along their local river and posting a photograph or two on social media – tagging Mersey Rivers Trust and #MerseyRiversWeek”.
