Annual meeting fills hall!

The Lopham's village hall was packed for our 12th annual meeting on 3rd December. Members and friends enjoyed Dr Nigel Holmes' talk explaining the simple methods he used in the autumn to restore parts of the channel of the river Little Ouse. His examples of the success of similar methods used on other badly-managed river channels were inspiring and hugely encouraging. As ever, the evening was concluded with a wonderful spread of seasonal food and opportunity to catch up with old friends and new news.

Creative art group exhibitions

Two years of hard work by the LOHP Creative Arts Group, finally came together in late October with a series of inspiring exhibitions of visual and performance arts, celebrating the unique landscape, wildlife and history of the Little Ouse headwaters. Launched by Phil Rothwell of the HLF East of England committee, the exhibitions, held at local village halls, attracted many visitors from the local area and further afield. The Creative Arts Project was led by the Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts and funded as part of the LOHP's Heritage Lottery Fund grant.
