National award recognises the LOHP's work

We're excited and honoured to announce that we've won the prestigious CIEEM (the Professional Membership Body for Ecologists and Environmental Managers in the UK and Ireland) NGO Impact Award against strong national competition. The award was announced on the summer solstice at a ceremony in the grand surrounds of the Merchant Taylors' Hall in Threadneedle Street, London - a far cry from the Little Ouse Headwaters! It recognises the achievements of the dedicated and dogged LOHP volunteers over the last 16 years, working to restore and reunite the precious valley fens, as well as heaths and meadows, alongside the upper reaches of the Little Ouse. We're very grateful to CIEEM and to the awards sponsors WildCare.

Celebrating our peat!

Our 'Peat Fest' on the 7th May was a lovely celebration of what's beneath our feet. Our art exhibition by many wonderful local artists featured the extrordinary pollen grains found buried in peat, which tell us so much about local lansdcapes, wildlife and human influence over the last 8,000 years. Bread-making on a peat fire showed how local people were able to use peat from the fens for fuel, and displays, games and guided walks and talks gave our many visitors an great introduction to why peat matters. The event was beautifully decorated with fen-themed bunting by local primary school children.
