River Tweed awarded top prize

The River Tweed Forum in the Scottish Borders has been announced as the winner of the top UK River Prize at this year's River Restoration Centre’s Annual Conference.

The Tweed Forum were presented with a cheque for £10,000 to be used on further restoration of the river, as well as the Nigel Holmes trophy.

The trophy is awarded to "celebrate innovation and best practise in river restoration and catchment management."

Tweed Forum has been responsible for projects that have protected and improved miles of river; conserved wildlife, increased fish stocks and enhanced rare wetland habitats.

It's also helped control Giant Hogweed and Japanese Knotweed covering an area of 300 miles.

"Whilst the £10,000 prize is fantastic and extremely important, it is the recognition of years of work by the Forum and its members that is perhaps more valuable."

– Luke Comins, Director of Tweed Forum
