A Heritage Lottery grant of over £900,000 will enable a range of community projects in the Ouse Washes area.

The grant of £905,100 was awarded to the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership scheme and a diverse programme of activities was unveiled this week.

The Partnership aims to deliver a range of projects that will include community engagement events and activities in several areas, from conservation work to creating new films and information panels about the history of the landscape.

There will also be volunteering and skills training opportunities including community archaeological excavations, archival research and wetland management.

Several projects in this area are already planned for this spring and summer, such as the creation of murals at Mepal, Welney and Denver Sluice Complex, a new film and exhibition at WWT Welney Reserve and installation of a pond dipping platform at Manea Pit.

The projects will be focused on community groups, as well as families and children, farmers and visitors. The planned events will offer something for everyone. There is also a Festival Fortnight planned for July 2015 and 2016.
