The latest BEACON newsletter is now out and ready for you to read with your morning coffee, please download using the blue link below.

It provides a round-up of the work we have been able to achieve on the Bollin catchment this year, and we are very grateful to all our partners, volunteers and friends of groups for their massive support during a year where we have worked at a hugely reduced capacity.

If you have any questions relating to the items mentioned in the newsletter please do not hesitate to contact us here.

LCR Culture & Creativity Awards 2020

We know what a challenging time it is, but we still have a huge amount of culture and creativity to celebrate in the city region. Liverpool City Region want to recognise and celebrate all that has been achieved through such a challenging period.

Nominations can include an individual, organisation, business, group or partnership, that has demonstrated outstanding creative achievement through cultural activity over the last year. This is not just restricted to professionals and can involve volunteers and community activity too. Don’t forget you can also nominate yourself or your organisation!

COVID-19 continues to have a massive impact on the cultural and creative sector, despite this, people have found new and innovative ways to be creative, so we are introducing two new categories this year to recognise these special contributions.

Help us reveal 2020’s cultural and creative heroes, and recognise the fantastic work that is making such a difference to people’s lives. Visit the LCR website to read about the award categories and to nominate. Nominations close on Friday 13 November. 



MRT is reviewing the latest government regulations and guidance on COVID-19 with a view to allowing our volunteer River Guardians to resume water quality and/or kick sampling activities where it is safe to do so from Monday 8 June and where they wish to do so. Additional health and safety measures are now required to meet the Government’s “COVID-19 Secure” requirements for working outdoors and these need to be briefed to each River Guardian before they can resume their volunteering work. We will update you later this week with our plans. Many thanks again for all the help and support we receive from our volunteers - and thank you for your understanding in these challenging times for everyone.
Best wishes, Paul and John (MRT Directors)
