Grayling Stocking - 11th December

On Thursday 11th December we stocked 2 stretches of the river Erewash with Grayling donated by the EA to the River Erewash Foundation.We have stocked through Broxtowe Borough Councils stretch to Long Eaton and the foundation is very grateful to Broxtowe Council for accepting our foundation and opening their arms to our conservation aims through their land. Moving on over the Toton sidings (Railway lines) we carried on stocking through Erewash Borough Council up from long Eaton towards Sandiacre and luckily the EA own this land (thank God) as Erewash Borough Council have seemed unhelpful to this point, though I'm glad to report their lack of co operation didn't prevent the foundation doubling its length of river to monitor the tiny graylings progress, in the coming years.Watch out for press releases and please notify on this thread should you spot any.

Our next management committee meeting will be at the Red Lion, Sandiacre on Monday 12th January at 7.30pm. Anyone wishing to become involved in conservation works and become active/members for £10 membership fee should attend this meeting. Membership forms can be downloaded by e-mailing the secretary at
