Please note that this event is postponed until further notice.

This event follows 2019’s ‘Marbles to Monsters’ sharing event in Cumbria, organised & hosted by Eden Rivers Trust, which offered a new opportunity for Rivers Trust staff to share creativity, discuss challenges and celebrate successes in community engagement across our network.
