Interested in the history of the Ouse Washes?
Why not come along to a conference hosted by the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership on it's Prehistroric Landscapes, Harnessing Water and Engineering Feats. It's taking place on Wed the 25th November at Downham Market Towm Hall between 09:00 - 16:00.

LOFFCA will be in attendance with Denis "Digger" Moules presenting the history of the Fenland Fishing and Kelvin Allen the AT regional chairman.
I attended a workshop run by the EA on the 16th July to look with partners at scoping a new Tidal Ouse action plan.
This is something that LOFFCA has been discussing since 2009 and may be of interest to those of you who care about the Ouse Washes and an intergrated approach.
The outcomes and key presentations are attached.
LOFFCA has been seeking a solution to the annual problem of managing poor water quality within the river Delph, from either summer flooding of the washes or zero flows within the river. After several years of seemingly slow progress, the problem has been recognised that some action is required and following a meeting with all the respective partners on the 16th April 2015 an action plan has been agreed. The minutes of this meeting are available to download above. Thanks must go to Mike Nunns for driving this issue within the EA and bringing the partners together. A link to the sonde live data is also available below.
