Photo plea for Moors Valley's 25th anniversary
3:00pm Monday 11th March 2013 in New Forest News
MOORS Valley Country Park and Forest is appealing for everyone who has used the Park since it first opened to send them their photographs.
They will be used to compile a social history of the park since it opened 25 years ago. The rangers have already uploaded some images to the Flickr website, showing the development of the site and a selection of events from the early 1990s.
These include opening ceremonies with local dignitaries and Esther Rantzen. The images will be made available for everyone to see online and a selection will also be chosen for inclusion on 25 history interpretation panels that will be placed around Moors Valley – now the third most visited country park in England.
Countryside Interpretation Ranger Katie Davies said: “Moors Valley means so many different things to so many people. We need your memories to help us mark our 25th birthday.
“It will be a marvellous way to see how the park has developed and will help us record park life for future generations.”
