River Tweed wins the 2015 UK River prize

The UK River Prize celebrates the achievements of individuals and organisations working to improve the natural functioning of our rivers and catchments, and recognises the benefits to society of having a healthy natural environment.

Tweed takes the top spot for outstanding demonstration of partnership, working at a catchment scale, improving the river for people and wildlife; resulting in a healthier and better functioning river environment.

Martin Janes, Managing Director, River Restoration Centre said:

Tweed Forum demonstrates the power of effective partnership; a focused unanimous voice working on behalf of the river and the people it links together. The judging panel were hugely impressed with the scale of work, the documented achievements and the long term vision for the River Tweed.”
