Radio interview about the Ouse Washes scheme

Getting the word out

On Sunday 5th May, Mark Nokkert – Programme Manager of the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership scheme – was invited to join Bill Hensley on his County Matters Logosprogramme on Huntingdon Community Radio to be interviewed about the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership scheme.

It was a very full interview which covered a lot of ground, and it included information which is interesting both for those who are familiar with the scheme, and for those who are finding out about it for the first time.

Covering all aspects of the scheme it gives an in-depth feel for what the Ouse Washes Landscape Partnership could achieve for the area, from the skills and training 337-LA-10 - Parish Boundariesundertaken and the legacy this will leave, to the bringing together of partnerships of parishes, districts and counties. From the emphasis on community involvement to the over-arching aim of “putting the area on the map”, it tells what the project is about, where it is and what it will do.
