World Wetlands Day – 2nd February 2021

In 2020 LAWPRO received almost 500 entries to the “Stories from the Waterside Competition”.  The competition was launched to tap into stories and encourage people to reflect and share their memories about special places with a connection to water (rivers, streams, lakes and so on).  Twenty prize winning entries were selected and 38 stories were compiled in a book which was published on World Heritage Day.  Due to popular demand all the stories submitted will now be published on a dedicated website.  The website will be launched to marks World Wetlands Day 2021. Together with this launch there will be an evening of story telling!!
