New Project Officer Appointed!

We are pleased to announce that we have appointed a new Project Officer for the Welland Rivers Trust.

Geoff Gilfillan started at the end of August, and will be based at the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust’s Allerton Project Visitor Centre in Loddington, Leicestershire. Geoff’s main roles will include:

  • The development and management of a wide range of current and future land, habitat, wildlife and water projects in the Welland Catchment.
  • Building close working collaborations with local statutory, voluntary and community organisations to deliver current projects and design, and develop and manage new opportunities.
  • Identifying and securing funding for the restoration and conservation of the River Welland.

We are all extremely excited for Geoff to get started in this role.

We also want to take this moment to thank Lisa Smallwood for her many years of fantastic work with the Welland Rivers Trust. Thankfully, Lisa has agreed to stay on as a Trustee for the WRT, and we will surely benefit greatly from keeping her knowledge and skills within the Trust.
