The RiverLife project took a giant step on Thursday 14th February, when major partners West Lothian Council, Forth Rivers Trust and the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) signed a new partnership working agreement. Under the agreement, West Lothian Council has agreed to support Forth Rivers Trust in sharing costs of the RiverLife project by taking over legal responsibilities with major project funders HLF. The agreement has been in design for months and has now been officially signed by major participating partners. With the boost in support, the RiverLife team can continue to deliver on its activity plans in communities along the Almond and Avon rivers without delay. Whether it is guided walks we have coming up or if you are keen to take up volunteering opportunities, keep an eye out in your local community for ways to get involved with our project.
