The Formation of the Lune Rivers Trust
For nearly 10 year many of you will have known us as The Lune Habitat Group. In 2000 the Group, lead by Chairman, Mick Jackson, Secretaries, Malcolm Hall and then Chris Littlefield and Treasurer, Ray Burrell, helped by willing volunteers, was recognized by ENTRUST as an environmental body and as such, with the aim of protecting and improving riverine habitat and encouraging the biodiversity of the River Lune and its tributaries, we have created over 30 habitat sites covering more than 50km of river bank in vulnerable areas.
In 2007, following approaches from the Association of Rivers Trusts, endorsed by the E.A. it was decided that we should become a charitable trust, The Lune Rivers Trust. We therefore became a Private Limited Company No. 6489777 in January 2008 and a Registered Charity in January 2009.
The Lune Rivers Trust is a charity dedicated to the conservation, protection, rehabilitation and improvement of the River Lune throughout its whole length and its associated tributaries in Cumbria, Yorkshire and North Lancashire. Our aim is to protect and improve the riverine habitat to encourage the biodiversity of the River Lune and its tributaries.
