Love Your River

Young female volunteersRivers are the lifeblood of our country – we want you to play your part in looking after them.

‘Love Your River’ aims to highlight the link between river health and water use, so that people understand and value water and take action to improve their local rivers and the environment around them.

Drought, over–use and pollution threaten the health of our rivers and we all have a role to play in investing in their future.

Backed by Defra and a coalition of NGOs and water companies, Love Your River celebrates the importance of rivers to local people – for their health, well-being, leisure and sport. Through this initiative we want to recognise the great work that local groups already do to look after their rivers.
