Tarmac, Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust and the Herts Natural History Society have won a prestigious Hertfordshire High Sherriff Award for their successful working partnership at Panshanger Park, receiving the ‘Highly Commended Award for a Voluntary-Private Sector Partnership’.
Last month, a group of film students from the University of Hertfordshire filmed scenes for ‘Nomad’, a dark science-fiction short film,at Panshanger Park. The film, which will be a deciding factor in the students’ final degree grade, tells the story of 3 astronauts who must set up a colony on a distant planet to save humanity from extinction.
This week, Panshanger’s flock of sheep have been returned to the park to graze. Keeping sheep in the park helps keep the grass in good condition, reduces the need for mowing and encourages botanical diversity by removing fast growing plant species that would otherwise out compete smaller, finer flowers.
This February half term saw three fantastic family-friendly events held in Panshanger Park, run by Tarmac and Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.
