if you attended our Urban Conclave in Stalybridge last September, and saw the launch of WTT’s Trout in the Town Urban River Toolkit, you might remember that we also announced a new nationwide accreditation scheme for all our urban river groups.
Like so much else this year, this initiative has been held up by the Covid-19 pandemic, but we’ve now sent out accreditation forms to urban river projects all over the country.
So what’s in this idea for you and your urban river group?
Becoming an accredited Trout in the Town ‘chapter’ means that your group will be officially recognised as part of our inspiring urban river movement.
When your accreditation appears (or is updated) on the Trout in the Town page of WTT’s website, you’ll be able to see how you’re progressing, compared to other similar chapters – and find out which other groups you could approach to share relevant experience and knowledge.
And, of course, once we’ve heard what stage of development your group has reached, we may be able to offer you even more support to help you grow and develop further.
To help you celebrate all this, we’ll send you a special Trout in the Town certificate – detailing First Contact, Bronze, Silver or Gold levels – and a matching badge to display on your website and other promotional materials.
So, if you haven’t received a form yet, but you’d like to get your group accredited as an official Trout in the Town chapter, please get in touch with Paul or Theo.
Or if you’ve received your form already, please send it back to us so that we can get your accreditation processed as soon as possible.
In the meantime, if there’s anything you’d like to discuss, about the form or anything else to do with urban river projects, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
We’re looking forward to hearing from you – and getting your local urban group officially accredited as a Trout in the Town chapter!
