January and February events: A gap in the drizzly grey skies over Peterborough recently, left the city’s Nene Park sparking under a fine bright blue sky.

But while the chilly weather has kept all but the hardiest of visitors away from the park, officials of the Nene Park Trust have been working on a new programme of activities to keep visitors occupied.
