Royal Visit

On Tuesday HRH The Duke of Gloucester toured Ferry Meadows with Nene Park Trust staff to observe the changes and improvements at the Park since his first visit back in 1995.

Whilst at the park, His Royal Highness officially opened the Discovery Den, the new education centre at Ferry Meadows and met local school children and teachers from Gunthorpe Primary taking part in a river studies day at the Park.

The Duke was presented with a special memento of his visit to the park; a hazel crook made by David Linscott, one of the Park Rangers, using a piece of timber sourced from Bluebell Wood within Ferry Meadows back in 2005.

He then went on to see how the Trust's Ranger team manage the parks landscape before heading to the Watersports Centre to meet with volunteers and service users of the Peterborough 'Sailability' and Adapted Cycling schemes before finishing the tour at The Green Cafe to meet the Trust team over afternoon tea.
