A group of Grantham volunteers is featured in a film made by a new charity which looks after the county’s rivers.

The Grantham Rivercare group can be seen in the film called “The Wonderful Witham” which has been made by underwater wildlife film maker and photographer Jack Perks.

The film was commissioned by the Lincolnshire Rivers Trust, a new local freshwater conservation charity and will be premiered in Grantham on January 21 at 6.30pm in the council chamber of South Kesteven District Council.

The film is a short introduction to the Witham catchment, its wildlife, the people and its issues. It is also an introduction to the Witham Partnership, a DEFRA-funded initiative, and the trust’s aspirations for protecting, restoring and enhancing the county’s waterways.

Grantham Rivercare group volunteers to keep the river litter-free on a regular basis.

The screening is open to all and is free to attend. There will be time for questions afterwards. Jack Perks will be guest of honour and will be on hand to answer any film making, photography or wildlife related questions. His work has featured on BBC Springwatch, Countryfile, BBC News and in BBC Wildlife Magazine.
