I was proud to be at the opening of the Godmanchester Mill Steps Fish Pass on Thursday (9 June 2022). This project –  which has been many years in the planning – has been achieved by the Town Council in conjunction with Huntingdonshire District Council, the Environment Agency, Godmanchester in Bloom and the A14 Legacy Fund. It has been delivered by Breheny Civil Engineering Ltd, and provides a wonderful new facility for the town. While the ground cover is understandably sparse at present, I am confident that this will ‘naturalise’ over time. Meanwhile, it has removed another bar to spawning fish and eels migrating up the River Great Ouse, and helps to make our town yet more environmentally friendly. I am very proud of what our citizens have achieved.
