Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall recently attended the National Lottery Big Lunch in Lisnaskea, Co. Fermanagh. RSPB partners, The Lough Erne Landscape Partnership were invited to attend the event and had the opportunity to meet with Prince Charles and present the work of the Lough Erne Landscape Partnership.
Programme Manager Elmarie Swanepoel stated;
“ We were delighted to be part of this very special day in Lisnaskea, and it was an honour to have the opportunity to discuss the Partnership scheme which is funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Prince Charles was interested in hearing about the role of the Partnership in protecting, promoting and enhancing the heritage of the Lough Erne region. We were able to highlight the ambitions of the project and the Prince took a particular interest in the demonstration bee hive on display that relates to the Amazing Pollinators project, one of 23 projects that will be carried out over the next four years.”
