Inclusion in this calendar is NOT a guarantee of quality. If we think something is extremely likely to be worth your time, then we will put one or more little “thumbs up” icons next to it.

“Our speakers will be sharing their experience and knowledge of delivering this theme and include James Hall from the Lancashire Wildlife Trust base in Bolton where they deliver River Studies, Andrea Marshall from MCC sharing the ‘Red to Blue’ project on the river Medlock and Liz Newbon from Oxfam who will be sharing the resources they have developed around water.”
