'Nature is not only beautiful but it is also fundamental to our lives. We can’t survive without it, but Wales’s natural environment is in decline and so are the benefits that it delivers. The LNP Cymru project will build a nature recovery network to help reverse this, engaging people and communities, businesses and decision-makers in both practical action and strategic planning for a healthy, resilient and nature-rich Wales.'

'There are two themes in this unusual London museum. London's canals have a fascinating past and you will learn not only how they came to be built but about the lives of the workers, the cargoes, horses and how canals work. We are a waterways museum first and foremost, but also an industrial museum telling the story of the ice industry in London. It is the only London museum of inland waterways.'  Monthly programme of illustrated lectures.

Our present-day aims : * To promote interest in and research into the history, natural history, archaeology and literature of Louth; * To organise lectures and excursions connected to the local history and natural history of our area; * To provide a museum for Louth and the local area, which is open to the public and tells the story of our town and its people.'
