Conserving Coniston & Crake – Healthy water for wildlife and communities

South Cumbria Rivers Trust and Coniston & Crake Catchment Partnership awarded National Lottery support

South Cumbria Rivers Trust has received confirmation of a grant of £763,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to manage the Conserving Coniston & Crake project for the local community’s Coniston & Crake Catchment Partnership. Thanks to money raised by National Lottery players, the project will improve the catchment’s water quality, habitats and biodiversity through conservation and community engagement.

Coniston Water and the Crake Valley is enjoyed by many: its spectacular landscape is a mosaic of different habitats, and home to some of our rarest and most loved species, including Atlantic Salmon, Arctic Charr, otters and bats. However, problems such as poor water quality, invasive non-native species and man-made changes to the natural habitats mean that the lake and rivers and their wildlife are under threat. The Conserving Coniston & Crake project will work alongside the local communities to support the landscape and wildlife which are so important to the history and cultural identity of this beautiful area.

Through Conserving Coniston & Crake, the Coniston & Crake Catchment Partnership and the South Cumbria Rivers Trust will be working in partnership with existing enthusiastic volunteers and other local people and organisations on a wide range of practical conservation projects and community events. Activities for families and local schools, community arts, and an oral history project will be parts of an extensive and exciting programme for locals and visitors alike. We are looking for volunteers to join the existing local crew, so if you want to try something new and learn new skills, let us know. Visit our website (www.ccc.scrt.co.uk) to find out more about the project, how to get involved and to sign up to local events.

Conserving Coniston & Crake Project Officer Charlotte Hall commented: ”We’re delighted that we’ve received this support thanks to National Lottery players. The Coniston and Crake Valley is a beautiful place to live, and very popular with visitors. However, the lake, river and becks are under threat. This local community project will help raise awareness of the issues and make sure that we have the clean water and habitats to support our native plants and wildlife for the years to come.”

Nathan Lee, Head of HLF North West said: “We are delighted to provide funding for this project, which, through National Lottery players, will ensure that the beauty and biodiversity of one of the Lake District’s most famous lakes, Coniston Water, is preserved for all the visitors and local communities that enjoy it.”

The project is run by South Cumbria Rivers Trust and the Coniston & Crake Catchment Partnership, working together with the Lake District National Park Authority, the National Trust and other local and national organisations. 


The NJOY Youth group for school years 7-11 is meeting this half term but on a different programme to normal. There will be something on every Thursday this half term but check with Charlie Day - Children’s and Youth worker for more info: 07788187718 or charlieccyw@gmail.com


The fundraising meal in aid of St.Mary's Hospice due to be held on Thursday 13th July at Brantwood has been postponed.

An alternative event will be announced at a later date.

On Saturday 24th June, 11am to 4pm, local artist and printmaker Jamie Barnes will be holding a workshop entitled ‘Interpreting Landscape’. Jamie will lead participants through making a range of abstracted landscape prints by using a reference drawing to produce trace monotypes, drypoint engravings and collagraphs. All materials will be supplied, though participants may want to bring sketchbooks or reference photographs. The cost is £5.00 including lunch provided by the Village Table.

 

Booking is advisable for both events please contact Tracy Hodgson on 015394 41823, tracy@grizedale.org 

 

Leicester Grammar School pupils, who are visiting Coniston to complete their Duke of Edinburgh Awards at the end of June, have kindly offered to perform a free concert for the Village in the Institute Hall on Thursday 29th June at 7.30pm. The School Concert Band, String Orchestra, and Choir will perform a variety of music including Hey Jude, Rather Be, Gangnam Style, Don’t Stop the Beat from the Musical Hairspray and much more.
