After contacting Nature England about the state of the canal and the surrounding SSSI, I have been contacted by Lizzie Dealey who is the Pocklington Canal Project Officer. She is keen to build up relationships with local parishes and provide information from the Canal and River Trust about works soon to be taking place on the canal, particularly those relating to habitat improvements.She is hosting a Drop In Information Event at Melbourne Village Hall on Thursday 17th November (2:30pm – 7:00pm). Please could you post the attached poster on the Blog.
have sent Paul information and it will be brought to the
village meeting. I hope to be in receipt of her quarterly
magazine and other information which I will pass on to the
village and we may get her to come and talk to the village.
There is a great opportunity for villagers to get involved
with looking after this important SSSI.
