In 2016 poaching become a significant issue in and around Peterborough on the river Nene. Both city and district councils couldn’t attract the funding to deal with what was becoming anti social behavior on the riverbanks. Kelvin approach the Building Bridges team to see whether we could jointly attract funding from the forming Nenescape landscape partnership funded Hertiage Lottery scheme. We became one of 10 partner organisations within Nenescape and for 5 years worked on bringing angling communities together to understand and resolve many of the issues.
The 5 year scheme ran between 2017 – 2022
