This is the first in a series of short videos capturing the views of people who live along the River Culm. Paul, a resident of Bradninch and a member of Sustainable Bradninch, shares his thoughts on the issues faced by the river and how he would like to see things develop.

The picture above is by Alison Day, showing the Culm above Hele, taken from a public footpath over the river leading into Bradninch.

It would be great if we can look at how the river can tackle two very interconnected challenges we have at the moment – the first being climate change and the second being the nature emergency – and these two things are inextricably linked”

Paul, Bradninch resident
