A public consultation and exhibition for this Project was arranged for Saturday 13 January 2007. It was held in the Arethusa Venture Centre, Lower Upnor from 10am - 3pm.  When the doors opened at 10am there were already a small number of keen people interested enough to be first in to view the proposals.  A steady trickle of visitors throughout the day came along to study the project proposals and view the plans.  Many comments and fresh ideas were discussed with the Parish Council, Groundwork Medway and Swale, and Arethusa Venture Centre representatives in attendance.

The Project is a partnership aiming to improve the physical landscape along the riverside in Lower Upnor for residents and visitors alike.  The Lower Upnor Riverside Project is a joint venture between Frindsbury Extra Parish Council, Medway Council, the Upnor Society, the Arethusa Venture Centre, Groundwork Medway Swale, Medway Yacht Club and the Medway & Swale Estuary Partnership.
