HRH The Princess Royal has been visiting apprentices at the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust this week.

It wasn’t all sun and sailing when Princess Anne visited the Isle of Wight on Monday and Tuesday, Her Royal Highness also took a trip into Bouldnor Forest Nature Reserve to meet visitors and apprentices.

During her visit to the nature reserve The Princess Royal met the trust’s new Woodland Apprentices, and took time to watch one of its weekly Woodland Therapy sessions which offers adults with mental health issues the chance to spend time in a natural, relaxing setting.

Chief Executive of Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust Debbie Tan said:

“We are extremely honoured to welcome Her Royal Highness to our nature reserve and share some of the important work that we do on the Island to look after wildlife and connect people with nature.

Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust looks after 10 nature reserves across the Island and we work with many landowners and partners to create space for wildlife. We also help hundreds of children, adults and families enjoy the fantastic natural environment on their doorstep. We are very grateful for the Princess Royal’s interest in our work and we are very much looking forward to the day.”
