ABBA (A Better Biss Approach) is an exciting 5-year project of practical action, innovative community and business engagement and high-level strategic planning across the River Biss and its tributaries. The project will work in partnership with local authorities, charities, local businesses and community groups to achieve shared aims across the catchment.

ABBA will deliver physical restoration of the river to provide natural capital benefits and WFD improvements hand-in-hand with large-scale community and business engagement whilst developing innovative solutions to the historic challenges the river faces through Trowbridge. 

The project will deliver a programme of events each year, working with local communities and volunteers, to raise awareness of the issues facing the catchment.

We are always on the lookout for:

  • Opportunities to work with local communities and landowners to develop projects or help with advice
  • Volunteers to help us with our work, either on the practical side outdoors or in the office
