Panshanger Park picks up prestigious prize
In 2017, our partnership with Hertfordshire and Middlesex Wildlife Trust and the Hertfordshire Natural History Society won a prestigious Hertfordshire High Sheriff Award for Panshanger Park.
The awards, run by the High Sheriff in association with Hertfordshire Community Foundation, highlight, celebrate and encourage partnership working between voluntary or community sector organisations and the public or private sectors. Panshanger Park received the ‘Highly Commended Award for a Voluntary-Private Sector Partnership’.
Hertfordshire and Middlesex Wildlife Trust are working with us to deliver education and engagement projects at Panshanger Park, making it a better place for wildlife and people, and encouraging volunteering and educational activities.
The Award recognises the important role of volunteers, including support from the Herts Natural History Society for the Annual Festival of Wildlife which is held at the Park and attracted more than 1,500 visitors last year.
Stuart Wykes, director of land and natural resources, said: “We are thrilled to be awarded for our partnership working. We are extremely proud of our restoration of Panshanger Park and seeing how wildlife thrives here, all achieved with the help of our partners.
“Our initiatives, like the Forest School and the People and Wildlife Project, mean that a diverse range of people from across the county can enjoy and learn more about the outstanding landscape and habitat we have here.”
