BBC Radio Lincolnshire presenter Melvyn Prior presents Green Champions Award to Grantham RiverCare




A Rivercare group which has been cleaning up the Witham through Grantham for 17 years received a special award from the BBC yesterday.

BBC presenter Melvyn Prior awarded the group the BBC Radio Lincolnshire Make A Difference Green Champions Award after the group were crowned champions earlier this year

David Martin, co-leader of the group, said: "We had a nice sizeable group there that certainly represented the group over the 17 years. We had a quick photo call and then we rushed for shelter in the Wyndham Park Memorial Arch.

"Melvyn then had a chat with all the group, recording it, it gave some content for a piece that was broadcast this afternoon on BBC Radio Lincolnshire."

David said he hoped it would be possible to display the award in the Wyndham Park Visitor Centre for a couple of weeks for people to take a closer look.
