The Natural World Centre is to host a brand new exhibition showing the history of Whisby Nature Park set to open later this year.
The Natural World Centre is asking members of the public to share their interest and memories of Whisby Nature Park and to contribute to their ‘History of Whisby’ exhibition. The exhibition will focus on the development of the site and is planned to open at the Natural World Centre later this year.
The exhibition will be the first to be displayed in the centre’s refurbished basement area which until earlier this year housed the ‘Our Changing World’ exhibition and is part of the recent investment from North Kesteven District Council. Completion dates for the area and opening of the exhibition are still to be confirmed.
It is hoped that the exhibition will be made up from a combination of contributions from the public who have been involved with the parks development or who have visited over the years. It is intended to be a celebration of the site and have a real visual element showing visitors the history of the site and how it compares to today.
Contributions can be in the form of documentation, imagery, articles, film or audio footage. The team are also collating individual stories and memories to add a personal touch to the development of Whisby. They are also welcoming any artefacts, materials, equipment or items which can bring the story of Whisby alive.
For further information, or if you have anything you would like to contribute, include or show, please contact Ann Worrell on 01522 688868 or email email@example.com In fact, if you feel you can contribute in any way, please contact us.

The winner of this year’s competition was ‘Nightingale at Whisby’ by Paul Marshall. Steve Hatton from Electric Egg who judged this year’s entries said:
“Electric Egg are delighted to pick ’Nightingale at Whisby’ as the winner of this year’s photo competition. Wildlife photography requires great technical skill, an eye for composition and patience. The judges thought the photograph was not only technically very proficient but also that the use of the branches as a natural frame gave the image a pleasing and balanced composition.”
Leslie will not only have her image featured on the front of the calendar but will also get to spend half a day with Steve to gain some hands on advice about professional photography.
