Our next meeting:
THE MERSEY BASIN CAMPAIGN,
25 YEARS ON:
WHAT HAS BEEN ACHIEVED?
An illustrated talk by Prof. Peter Batey
on Wednesday 25th November
at 7.30 pm
in the Olive Mount
The Mersey Basin Campaign was started 25 years ago in an attempt to repair the damage done to the region's rivers by industrialisation, and to encourage waterside regeneration.
It was a pioneering example of partnership working - involving the public, private, community and voluntary sectors - and comes to an end in March 2010.
This presentation aims to answer five questions about the Campaign: Why was it needed? What did it try to achieve?
How did it do this? What impact has it had?
Is there life beyond the Campaign?
