Logo: The Upper Axe CIC

The River Axe needs some work.

There is a strong will to save the Axe and the habitats it supports, and this is represented in the DEFRA funded Landscape Recovery project.

We are now seeking a Manager to help the project team complete the Project Development Phase, culminating in an inspiring detailed proposal to DEFRA for long term investment, and the provision of long term support for sustainable land use in the catchment.
