Welcome

Welcome to Stamford RiverCare
January 2017: we're sorry and disappointed to announce that Stamford RiverCare has been wound up. We've lost a number of dedicated volunteers in the last year, and are no longer able to call on enough people to do our environmental tasks safely. If you're interested in restarting the group, please contact fiona.mckenna@keepbritaintidy.org. Or check out the RiverCare website for details of other RiverCare groups in the Area. We'll keep these pages online for reference.

The Stamford RiverCare Group was set up in 2004 to care for the Stamford stretch of the Welland River.

The Group aims to:

  • Raise the profile of the River Welland with respect to its natural value, cultural heritage and as a public amenity.
  • Encourage members of the public to appreciate the River Welland and surrounding floodplain in Stamford.
  • Support the maintenance and scientific study of the river and Meadows wherever possible.
  • Promote and practice sustainability at all times.

The Group is made up of local volunteers and would welcome new recruits and interest from other groups.

You can contact the Group by e-mail: info@stamfordrivercare.org
