A new logo for the River Idle Catchment Partnership

The River Idle Catchment Partnership has unveiled its new logo this week. The bright, colourful and bold design was chosen by the Partnership from almost 100 entries into their ‘design a logo’ school’s competition, generously funded by Severn Trent.

Lennon Foster from High Oakham Primary School in Mansfield came up with the winning design and was awarded his prize by representatives from the Catchment Partnership.

Speaking about the competition, Sarah Spurry from the Maun Conservation Group said: "It's a real honour for Maun Conservation Group members that Lennon Foster from High Oakham Primary School, who visited the Quarry Lane Nature Reserve with his class and learnt about the River Maun, has won the River Idle logo competition - a great design which we look forward to using on our publicity."

Zara Turtle, catchment partnership coordinator from Severn Trent, added: “We’re delighted to have sponsored this competition as we think that working in partnerships to improve and sustain our local water network and surrounding environment is incredibly important. It’s possible to achieve far more for the environment by working in partnership than if we all worked individually.”

The River Idle Catchment Partnership has a vision to conserve and enhance the Rivers Idle, Ryton, Poulter, Meden, Maun, their tributaries and surrounding land, to create a healthy and wildlife-rich water environment for the benefit of both people and biodiversity. The new logo will help to publicise the work of Partnership members in delivering environmental, agricultural and social improvements to the catchment’s waterbodies through collaboration, education and ground work.
