The Friends of Ground Breaking Projects run community river restoration programmes and organise specific days where groups of volunteers can get involved and help clean our waterways.
Our goals are to create wildlife habitats, remove non-native species and to transform our neglected waterways for everyone to enjoy.
We are also involved in setting up a scheme to survey wildlife and monitor the river banks and water quality all year round. We are working to bring the River Lea back to life.
We are also a training provider offering courses in landscaping and fishing.
As a group we offer services to corporate clients and other organisations which include landscaping maintenance training programmes to create employment for young people.
A clean environment helps people to improve their skills and prospects and helps motivate people make their own decisions, which in turn helps create better local employment for local people.
