Welcome to the website for the New Life on the Old West project, funded through the National Lottery Heritage Fund. It was originally supposed to commence in April 2020 but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the start was delayed until October 2020. We intend kicking off our activities more fully in early 2021.

The New Life on the Old West project will deliver 88 wildlife habitat enhancements to the green spaces and surrounding countryside in areas around the Old West river, focusing on 9 parishes: Cottenham, Haddenham, Little Thetford, Over, Rampton, Stretham, Wicken, Willingham and Wilburton. This project will improve the lives and opportunities of people living in these communities by increasing their access to local nature, and helping a wide range of children and adults to develop new skills and learn about their unique fenland wildlife and natural heritage.

If you need more information and can’t find what you wanted then please call or email us for a chat.

Also, do have a look (or like/follow) us on our project social media accounts on Twitter (@NewLifeOldWest) and Facebook (@newlifeontheoldwest) .
