The Nature of Millbrook: Exploring environmental issues in a community workshop
On the 30th November 2016, Westcountry Rivers Trust held a Community Drop‐In Session & Workshop in the Cornish village of Millbrook, during which the local community discussed the environmental challenges they are facing and the opportunities they have for meeting them. We also discussed how they saw the Millbrook catchment landscape being managed in the future. The day culminated with a presentation and workshop in the evening, with over 60 people attending throughout the course of the day. We were overwhelmed by the community spirit shown by the Millbrook residents, their engagement in their local environment and willingness to continue to build on the wealth of natural resources on their doorstep. Millbrook is a stunning place to live and we are looking forward to continuing to work with the local community to help them make the most of the opportunities available to them and ensure that the environmental issues faced by the village do not overshadow the many wonderful things about living in Millbrook.
