What we are about
River 2015 is an independent charity formed by a group of dedicated volunteers who are passionate about the River Holme, it’s ecology, heritage and people. Whether you’re an individual, business, community group or school, we want you to join our ambition to improve the whole river catchment from Holme village to Huddersfield Town. Follow us on Facebook and help us work towards a cleaner, greener river system: a place to relax and enjoy, link moorland and countryside to town and improve the quality of life for residents and visitors to this iconic part of West Yorkshire.
The middle of Holmfirth is over-crowded with weed trees. We aim to reduce these trees and replant native species along the river.
Views across the Holme Valley are stunning and being able to sit beside the river provides tranquility, we will improve access and provide seating facilities so everyone can enjoy the river.
Wild trout is common already within the river Holme, we woud like to see a greater range of fish and are working closely with the Wild Trout Trust and Calder and Colne River Trust to achieve this.
