Talk:Wilbrahams River Protection Society


Rivers & Vital Local Aquifers Need Protection

The consequences of ever more frequent periods of low rainfall, exacerbated by too much domestic water being pumped out of our chalk aquifers are plain to see here in The Wilbrahams’ and Fulbourn by the worrying loss of natural feed from local springs.

The subject is up for discussion at a talk in The Memorial Hall at 7:30 on Thursday 14th November when Stephen Tomkins, co-author of The River Cam Manifesto, published by the Cam Valley Forum, will be asking “Is the Plight of Cambridgeshire’s Chalk Streams Reversible?”

Stephen’s talk follows the AGM of The Wilbraham River Protection Society which starts at 7:00 pm. Early birds can enjoy a glass of wine before the talk starts at 7:30.

Stephen Tomkins was formerly Director of Studies for Biological Sciences & Head of the Science Faculty at Homerton College & Lecturer in Biological Education, University of Cambridge.
