Newbridge Tidy Towns and the local community are celebrating the River Shiven with an open invitation to an afternoon of 'Sharing Shiven Stories' related to all aspects of the local River Shiven in Newbridge Social Centre on Saturday Aug 19th.

From the built heritage of stone bridges to the many mills to the pastimes of salmon, trout fishing and swimming, we will hear from the local community and guest speakers about the influence of this river on the lives of generations of this community down through the ages.

There will be a display of images of the many beautifully constructed bridges from local stone that exist along its route and the incredible biodiversity and wildlife in our midst. We'll look at the Shiven's Blue Dot high quality status and consider the challenges ahead in preserving this status and in maintaining our connection to this wonderful river and its importance to our future sustainability.

Come and join us for this celebration of our river, meet community, share stories and enjoy a chat and refreshments in the convivial village of Newbridge.
