Save The Ribble

A blog dedicated to preserving the beauty and delicate ecosystem of the River Ribble, and opposing the Riverworks 'vision' to build a barrage on our River and develop on our riverbanks, floodplains and green spaces, causing damage to wildlife and the environment and increasing the risk of flooding to our homes.

Mouth Of The Ribble

The Save The Ribble blog was set up to voice the views of ordinary people in Preston, South Ribble and all along the banks of our beautiful river.

Now we need your help.

We want to hear from all the people who use and enjoy the Ribble, the sports pitches, allotments, green fields, cycle paths and ramblers routes around it.

If you are a footballer, a football dad or a football coach that uses the pitches at Penwortham Holme, Vernons or Frenchwood we want to hear from you.

If you are an angler who doesn't want to see the fishes' route up the river blocked, we want to hear from you.

If you are a bird watcher, who enjoys the rich birdlife of the estuary, we want to hear from you.

If you are a rambler, walking the gentle green banks of our river, who does not want to see them encased in concrete to make moorings for yachts, we want to hear from you.

If you care for an allotment, we want to hear from you.

If you are a photographer, an artist, or a poet, we want to hear from you.

If you use the river in any way, and want to register your protest at the way Preston City Council is spending your money on feasibility studies into the Riverworks proposals - to build a barrage across the river, and over 4000 houses on greenbelt land - then post your pro-river views to us.

If you care about the River Ribble, then this is your blog - tell us all about why you love your river - we would love to publish it.

You can post your contributions as comments below, or email them to:

Have you seen that Preston City Council is starting to make a move towards amalgamating with South Ribble Council and becoming a Unitary Authority? It would certainly make planning matters easier when it comes to things like Riverworks, wouldn't it..?
