Demon Shrimp Found in the Churnet

Working with the Environment Agency, the Churnet Valley Living Landscape Partnership has enabled 17 angling and conservation volunteers to help monitor the quality of the River Churnet. At a number of workshops held over the last eighteen months, the volunteers have been trained to monitor the Riverfly population and will be sampling and recording data at various sites in the valley.

Food Summit Event

A wide range of different organisations – from the public, private and VCSE sectors- took part in the first food summit, organised by the Staffordshire Rural Forum, at Rodbaston on 30th November.

There were interesting presentations from Tom Andrews of Sustainable Food Cities and Kay Johnson of the Lancashire Local Food Partnership which showed the breadth of food issues which can affect all aspects of our lives from food poverty and health issues to food production and business impact.
