THE Big Lottery Fund has awarded £10,000 to pay for electrofishing equipment.

Don Catchment Rivers Trust secured the funding to enable work to be carried out in the Lower Don catchment, to sample the water to measure how much progress is being made with cleaning it up and improving the ecology and habitats.

A trust spokeswoman said: “Groups are working hard to improve the river ecologically and recreationally by connecting local people with their river and encouraging ownership.”
