The Nature Improvement Area scheme

The Nene Valley and its tributaries is are amongst four areas nationally that have been designated as Nature Improvement Areas. The Diocese of Peterborough is pleased to be linked with this scheme and looks forward to seeing it develop over the coming years.

A major element of the project is the involvement of local people. The diocese and local churches are to be included in specific parts of the project and may be acting as hosts to some of the wide ranging activities that will bring more attention to the beauty of creation that surrounds us. The following items give an insight into the scheme. More details will become known in the weeks and months ahead.
