Communities invited to contribute to the Tame Valley Wetlands’ future vision

The Tame Valley Wetlands Landscape Partnership Scheme is inviting community groups and individuals with an interest in heritage, access to the countryside or the environment to their Community Gathering on Saturday 25th March.

This free event aims to bring together the communities of the Tame Valley Wetlands, located in rural North Warwickshire and Tamworth. It is an opportunity for local groups with common interests to network, share tips and ideas, and learn more out about the Tame Valley Wetlands Landscape Partnership. Attendees will also have a chance to suggest ideas and influence the future of the partnership and the valley.

Rita Gries, Community and Events Officer said: “We are really excited at this chance to hear from the local community. We have planned a day that should be fun and useful for local groups, with workshops on topics ranging from water vole conservation and wildlife first aid to funding advice and oral history. What’s more, lunch, refreshments and cake will be provided free of charge!”

The Tame Valley Wetlands Community Gathering will take place at the Link – Water Orton Community Venue on Saturday 25th March, from 10am to 3pm. To book and for a full programme of the day, go to


This event is part of the Tame Valley Wetlands – a landscape partnership scheme supported by the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, aiming to create a wetland landscape, rich in wildlife and accessible to all.


The Tame Valley Wetlands is led by Warwickshire Wildlife Trust in partnership with a wide variety of organisations including charities, local groups, statutory bodies and councils.
