National Lottery Awards

19th July 2017

Shailesh Vara MP is delighted that The Great Fen at Holme has been chosen as a finalist in the 2017 National Lottery Awards.

The Great Fen is one of the largest habitat restoration projects in Europe, with the aim of restoring and maintaining the wetland area of the Holmewood Estate in Cambridgeshire. National Lottery Funding, together with other generous charitable donations, has enabled the Great Fen to continue its important work, creating habitats for wildlife and engaging the local community in conservation.

Local people are encouraged to visit, where they can learn more about this valuable project and cast their vote for the 2017 National Lottery Awards.

Mr Vara said:

“I am very pleased that The Great Fen has been recognised in this way. The National Lottery provides funding for a great many worthy causes and it is good to see such a successful project in our local community.”
