Thanks to everyone who “came along” to our 2021 AGM on Zoom this week.
We had a fascinating evening, featuring really interesting talks about the history of the River Don between Club Mill Road and Wardsend Cemetery.
Our Trust chairman Simon Ogden, and Howard Bayley from Wardsend Cemetery, showed slides of how much the riverside has changed over the years.
As Simon said in the slide you can see above, this stretch of river is now “one of the city’s great hidden assets waiting to be reclaimed”.
That’s one of our overarching aims for the Upper Don Trail. We want rediscover a beautiful riverside running all the way from the city centre to the Peak District National Park!
We’ve made so much progress in the last year that we launched a new video at the AGM to tell you what we’ve been doing.
Huge thanks to our videographer Joey O’Connell of Hove and Co Photography for devoting so much time, love and care to the new film.
You’re a star Joey!
We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we enjoyed making it…
