Great Fen Local Group

Who are we?
The Great Fen Local Group organises a programme of entertaining talks, walks and events. These raise funds and promote awareness and appreciation of the Great Fen. The money we raise goes towards special projects within the Great Fen.

The Great Fen is one of the largest wetland restoration projects in Europe, extending from Peterborough to Huntingdon. For more information on the restoration project you can visit the Great Fen website here.



What events do we organise?
Our monthly talks are held at the Wildlife Trust Countryside Centre: it is well-signposted from the main road in Ramsey Heights and there is plenty of free parking. These Friday evening talks are informal and friendly, and we always provide tea and biscuits and sometimes wine.

Our midweek rambles, led by Adrian, are very popular whatever the weather. You can expect to be taken into parts of the Great Fen you might not otherwise discover, and most people make it out again as well!

We also organise fundraisers and these are listed along with all our forthcoming talks and walks in the events listings on this site.


Like to join us?
Formed in 2011 we warmly welcome anyone who would like to attend events, or join the committee, or help out or get involved, whenever and in whatever way you can. Taking our cue from the Great Fen, we cater for a mix of wildlife and local history interests, which makes our events and meetings lively and varied. You don’t need to be a member of the WT to join in or help out.
