Sundew

unveilingWe have just finished clearing away after our Sundew event commemorating the fortieth anniversary of ‘The Great Walk’.

We were please to see so many visitors, both new and returning. The volunteer team worked hard to keep up with demand, and everyone had a great day. The Sundew cab project has generated a lot of interest among visitors and local media – today even saw an ‘almost live’ outside broadcast with Rutland Radio presenter Rob Persani in attendance. This has to be a first for us –¬†Hopefully not the last!

We would once again like to thank people who responded to our appeals for Sundew photographs and stories in the local media. Our volunteers spent a lot of the day collecting contact information in order to be able to get back to people later on in order to record these great stories and anecdotes and preserve them for the benefit of future generations.

One of the highlights of the day was of course the long awaited unveiling of our new piece of industrial art commissioned by Rutland County Council, and funded with Arts Council Renaissance funding. This fantastic plaque will great visitors and hopefully encapsulate the experience they are about to have as they pass through our gates.

Never ones to rest on our laurels, we will be hard at it preparing for the next event very soon!
