Our team have a passion for rivers and the landscapes through which they flow. Their combination of skills, contacts and knowledge of the River Avon rivers and streams (including the Bristol Avon, Bristol Frome, River Chew, River Marden, Wellow Brook, Cam Brook, Little Avon, By Brook and Somerset Frome) is key to our ambition of making them a better place for wildlife and people both now and for future generations.
