We are very pleased to be working with Cambridgeshire ACRE to evaluate their new  ‘New Life on the Old West’ project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund.  The project aims to enhance the resilience of the Fenland landscape through improved habitat connectivity, increased biodiversity and greater opportunities for local people to engage with nature. We will develop an evaluation framework for the project, provide opportunities throughout the delivery phase of the project for reflection and learning and produce both interim and final evaluation reports.

The project will improve community green spaces and create a series of small-scale habitat improvements in the arable landscape, on the extensive ditch network and alongside the rivers running through the landscape. It will also ensure that a wider range of people can access and enjoy their local fenland countryside through diverse educational, events, citizen science and volunteering programme and through this help to create a sense of pride in the unique fens landscape.

You can find out more about the project and watch its progress by checking into their website: New Life on the Old West.
