New Rotary club hosts event looking at health of River Dee


The new Vale of Llangollen Rotary Club is hosting an event called The River Dee's Wildlife and Healthy Future tomorrow (Wednesday) at St Collen's Community Hall, from 7-8.30pm.

A club spokesperson said: "This will be a relaxed, fun and interactive social event for all ages looking at the health of our local River Dee. 

"There will be a short presentation, lively Q&A session so you can find out all about this local treasure, and learn how you can get involved in future fun events.

"The fun will continue with demonstrations and the opportunity to see some of the invertebrates and water samples yourself using microscopes, great for the young people.

"If you are interested in ecology, the local environment, wildlife, or the River Dee itself, this will be for you. Focusing on the current ecosystem and how it needs to be maintained and improved.

"We hope to see all of you there young and old, whoever you are, it’s a great chance for us all to meet each other for a chat.

"The Welsh Dee Trust is an environmental charity with the objective of restoring the brooks, streams and rivers of the Dee catchment in North Wales for wildlife and people."

A spokesperson for the Welsh River Dee Trust said: "At Welsh Dee we are turning around the fortunes of the River Dee and the wildlife that relies upon it. From the smallest Stonefly to the mighty Atlantic Salmon we believe our work can and will restore a thriving clean river benefitting both people and wildlife."

The Trust have been monitoring pollution, helping clean up rubbish, organising local nature walks and a host of other interesting and educational activities for local people.

This is a free public event open to all the community and will be the first of many new events being held by the Vale of Llangollen Rotary. For more information, go to:
