Log on to get involved with heritage

A NEW website has been created to help people get involved with the Peregrini Lindisfarne heritage scheme.

The website www.peregrinilindisfarne.org has been developed by the Peregrini Lindisfarne board and promotes activities and events as well as providing information about the landscape partnership scheme, which is based on Holy Island.

Jon Riley, the scheme development officer, said: “The website provides a wide range of information. It also has a What’s On and Events section, so people can find out about the different ways they can get involved with the project.”

The website has been developed by Amble-based website design company Colin Harris Website Development.

Jon said: “Colin and his team have been very helpful. They’ve produced a striking design for the website, but its still easy for users to navigate.

“The site is easy to keep up to date with the latest news from the project too, as people can subscribe to an email newsletter.”

To coincide with the launch of the website, a three-day information event is being planned from Monday to Wednesday, March 12 to 14, when there will be a variety of walks, talks and displays.

Gordon Davies, chairman of the Peregrini Lindisfarne partnership board, said: “Peregrini Lindisfarne involves a wide range of people and organisations. At the March event, people can enjoy guided walks led by naturalists, historians and geologists.

“There’ll be talks and displays by local history groups, information about renewable energy initiatives, and a chance to meet those leading this work.”
