Top award for volunteers who created railway wildlife area

The site near Nene Valley Station...
...has been transformed into a nature reserve.

Volunteers at a wildlife area in Peterborough have won a national award.

The Railworld site - near the Nene Valley Station - has been transformed into a nature reserve over the last 30 years.

Today those who help out there are being presented with the Queens Award for Volunteering.

Brian Pearce has helped to transform a derelict piece of land in Peterborough city centre into the Railworld Wildlife Haven.

He said: "The haven shows what is possible when people come together with a shared goal.

"It feels great to be able to put something back into the community and see people young and old come along and enjoy themselves."
