East of England Biodiversity Forum

The East of England Biodiversity Forum held an enjoyable and informative funding event  at Swavesey Village College, near Cambridge.

The focus of the day, chaired by Steve Scott of the Forestry Commission was funding for biodiversity.  Presentations on heritage funding, landscape partnership schemes and Leader funding came from Stuart Hobley, Heritage Lottery Fund, Mark Nokkert, Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership Scheme and Catherine Weightman, from Natural England.

The tour of  the RSPB Fen Drayton Lakes reserve led by  Chris Hudson. Chris outlined the benefits of organisations being involved in the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership and the potential of engaging with a greater range of people living and working near the reserve.
