Newsletter - November 2016

This month's newsletter is dedicated to the River Dee Trust Auction. Click on any of the links to go straight to the auction. Registration is simple and bidding is easy!!

The Trust carries out practical restoration projects on the River Dee to improve the River for fish and wildlife, such as opening up habitat for salmon and controlling invasive non-native plant species.

The Trust also delivers an educational programme, IntroDee, within the catchment. In 2016 we worked with 500 school children who enjoyed classroom activities, river bank visits and fishing.

To fund these activities, the Trust is holding an online auction and will use the proceeds to help us to continue to deliver our key projects. We hope you find something to tempt you and thank you for supporting the River Dee.

If you require any further information, please contact the River Dee office on 01339 880411 or by email at
