The 2016 Tweed Forum River Champion Award winner is announced!
We are delighted to announce that the winner of our first-ever Tweed Forum River Champion Award is Frank Turnbull (85) from Coldstream. We introduced this award to mark our 25th anniversary this year and Frank was chosen by our judging panel because of his exceptional and continuing hard work and enthusiasm for the preservation of the river and its surroundings. From tackling invasive plant species, grass strimming, tree planting and erecting fences, to participating in fish monitoring and preservation initiatives, his contribution is outstanding.
We’d like to thank Frank and everyone else who works to protect and preserve the wonderful River Tweed.
