Live Regeneration Q&A with additional resources Find out about our Ouseburn Regeneration Online offer. Guided walks We can arrange private Back to the Future guided walks which delve into the regeneration story of Ouseburn Valley. We can also offer more in-depth regeneration-themed walks for groups of university students or planners. Interviews For individual students seeking information for their research, we can offer a one-hour interview with either the former Regeneration Officer or the Trust's Chief Officer, depending on the subject of the research. We invite a £20 donation for this, or alternatively a student may undertake two hours voluntary work improving the Ouseburn environment, usually on a Saturday morning. Please email us to arrange a suitable time and date for an interview.
