TWO Keighley schemes will be spotlighted at a meeting in the town this month.

Green Drinks, an initiative for environmentally-minded Keighley people, will welcome two guest speakers.

Sam Riley, from the Aire Rivers Trust, will talk about the River Worth restoration project.

The initiative is being delivered by the trust in partnership with the River Worth Friends, with financial backing from the Towns Fund, Keighley Big Local and the Environment Agency.

Measures being carried out as part of the project include restoring waymarking and providing information to highlight public access opportunities along the course of the river, resurfacing of footpaths, the development of a network of river monitors to identify water quality problems, improvement work at Damems, and events to promote the value to the town of the river.

Also addressing the meeting will be Tony Bosworth, of Friends of the Earth, who will outline the Keighley & Ilkley for Warm Homes initiative, which is pressing for Government energy reforms and emergency support for those in need.

The meeting takes place at the Wellbeing Lounge, in East Parade, on Tuesday, July 25, at 5pm.
