FAKENHAM: 25 commitments in celebration
It’s been a popular visitor attraction in North Norfolk for a quarter-of-a-century so to commemorate the landmark, Pensthorpe Wildlife & Gardens has pledged 25 commitments to nature –one for every year of Pensthorpe’s existence.
The pledge actively tackles five key areas: the provision of new habitats, the restoration of rare wildflower meadows, improving knowledge of species behaviour, growing wildlife populations and above all, creating a plastic-free natural world where families can engage with nature for generations to come.
Bill Jordan, owner of Pensthorpe said: “The ethos of Pensthorpe is nature exploration and conservation, two things we’ve been utterly dedicated to for 25 years.
“We’re proud of our achievements but are now looking to the future to enhance Pensthorpe and secure its unique natural habitats for years to come.
“This pledge will see us activate 25 projects which are significant to the evolution of the reserve and the prosperity of the species that live within it”.
The 25 commitments were collaboratively compiled by the Pensthorpe team including owners Bill and Deb Jordan, head gardener Imogen Checketts and head warden, Ed Bramham-Jones.
They include tree planting, hedge management, increase wild bird food, managing wildflower areas and woodland, bird ringing, restoring two reaches of the River Wensum and woodland coppicing.
