This February Tarmac is spreading the simple message ‘bee kind’ to help raise awareness of the UK’s declining bee population, which is having a hugely negative impact on the environment.
It certainly has felt like we’ve had our fair portion of winter this year but whilst you’ve been out on your daily exercise recently you may have noticed that there are hints of Spring glimmering in the woodland or parkland near you.
Plans for making Panshanger Park a sustainable country park and nature reserve for the future are taking shape, the park’s management team has revealed.
Jo Whitaker is the new Panshanger Park People and Wildlife Officer. Jo works for Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust and her role is funded by Tarmac.
Panshanger Park will become a wilder place with a new community engagement and volunteering programme thanks to a new partnership between Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust and Tarmac.
Tarmac is working on a planning application for permission to build an additional car park for Panshanger Park visitors. The proposed new space will be able to facilitate three times the capacity of the current Thieves Lane parking area.
Following the closure of Thieves Lane Car Park on 24th March, we’re happy to announce the car park has reopened to the public.
Despite wet weather, the Festival of Wildlife attracted almost 2,000 people to Panshanger Park, near Hertford, to discover and celebrate wildlife.
We are delighted to confirm that 4.7km of new paths have opened at Panshanger Park, improving access from the south of the park for all visitors, whether on foot, cycle or horse; and providing routes to the historic Cole Green area. The new paths add to the 18km of paths already open to the public across the park.
