Our aim is to restore the natural balance of Bruton’s stretch of the river Brue as a haven for wildlife, and to promote our riverside as somewhere relaxing to spend time with nature.

We will work to connect Bruton’s historic town centre with footpaths upstream and downstream, learning under the guidance of Somerset Wildlife Trust and the Wild Trout Trust to enhance the river that gave Bruton its name, for the enjoyment of everyone who lives in or visits our town.
