Celebrating 5-years

In November 2020, we celebrated our 5-year anniversary at River Holme Connections and took the opportunity to look back at everything the team and volunteers have achieved in that time. We put together a short film which tells our story – who, where, why and what we are. Take a look, a short film with a big punch, made by our volunteers of course!

River Holme Connections relies on its volunteers, we are one big team. Here is Rhys, age 6, explaining what is so good about volunteering and why he can’t wait for his first ever waders.

In 2020 as COVID struck, we wanted to hear and share stories about the river. We launched a short story competition with the help of Joanne  Harris and the Read Bookshop in Holmfirth. The winning stories in each age group have been recorded by Ian McMillan and are here for you to enjoy once more.

A big thank you to Sue for compiling the video and Mick for providing the accompanying photographs.
