Weather and climate? Calling Farmers and Stakeholders in the Avon....

In collaboration with our colleagues from the Avon Demonstration Test Catchment team and our 'NUTCAT' Project, we would like to invite you to contribute your knowledge and experience to understanding and improving water quality in the Avon catchment under the impact of climate change.

As a starting point, we would like to gather your views on how the weather, climate and other pressures affect the way you live and farm in the Avon, So, you are invited to join us for a short presentation by experts from the UK Met Office on historic and future climate changes and trends in the Avon, followed by some small group discussions and feedback on likely land use and land management changes in the Avon in the future.

The meeting will be at:
The Coppleridge Inn, Elm Hill, Motcombe, Dorset SP7 9HW Monday 
15th June, 6.00 -9.00 pm 

A sandwich buffet will be provided

We really hope you can join us on Monday 15th June.

The event is free but please reserve your place and supper in advance. For further information please contact Dr Mary Ockenden, Lancaster University. Tel 01524 593968 or Email:
