Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust visit the Park

We were extremely pleased to welcome Isabel Barrett ((Fundraising and Development Officer) and Kathy Grogan (Forest Schools Leader) from the HIWWT (pictured above) who came to spend some time with us earlier today - at the Park and in the meadow next door. We spoke about the possibility of partnering each other in conservation and/or education projects - this was a preliminary meeting but there were lots of great ideas being ignited! We're looking forward to exploring some of the ideas further and hopefully to working more closely in the future. This comes with a big 'thank you' to both Issy and Kathy for their enthusiasm and their time!

Speaking of important meetings, next week we're looking forward to the arrival of The Isle of Wight's Lord Lieutenant, Martin White, at the Park. We're honoured at the Lord Lieutenant's expression of interest and look forward to welcoming both him and the Deputy Clerk to the Lieutenancy, Gillian Phenix, as our special guests.
