IMPROVING habitats for wildlife along the Bow Brook has scooped Worcestershire Wildlife Trust a value for money award.

The organisation is now one of four finalists competing for the national England River Prize after picking up the award from the River Restoration Centre and the Environment Agency.

Peter Case, the Trust’s water and wetlands officer, said they had worked with landowners along the length of the Bow Brook, including in Foxlydiate and Feckenham, for the past three years to improve water quality and provide better habitats.

“The project has been really successful and has been beneficial for both wildlife and people. We’re absolutely delighted to have won the value for money project category in these new awards and are looking forward with anticipation to the announcement of the overall winning project in early May.

“There is always more work that can be done and the overall winners of the England River Prize will receive prize money to help further restore their waterways back to health for local communities, wildlife and the environment.”
