What’s beneath the water in the River Ivel


It is amazing what you could see in the river or around the gardens and woodlands at Jordans Mill. Our volunteer Mark tells us a little bit more about Pike and Bream in this week’s feature.  

 

What does a Pike look like?  

 

A Pike has a bony head with forward looking eyes; it has a broad snout and a large mouth too. The mouth contains an arsenal of teeth with rows of backward pointing razor sharp teeth in the top jaw and larger needle type teeth in its lower jaw. The fish is torpedo shaped with fins mainly at the back of its body which can propel it forward at very high speed, when catching its prey.

 

A momento from the Mill


Our wonderful volunteers do so many things for us and we simply couldn’t do it without them. Tour guide, Jonathan Payne tells us a bit more about why he came to the Mill and how it led him to design a miniature card model of the Mill.

Jonathan retired from work in late 2012 and saw an advert from the Mill recruiting for tour guides and stewards. Jonathan and his wife applied and became tour guides all ready for the grand opening of the Mill and heritage centre in spring 2013.


We know how busy the summer holidays can be, so make sure you come to Jordans Mill and let us entertain the family! If your looking for Family things to do in Bedfordshire, see what Jordans Mill has to offer!

Local pupils groom their way to five a day

Green fingered children from Garden City Academy have found room to grow a range of vegetables from seeds in their allotment after a donation from the Jordans Trust in Biggleswade.
 
The Year 1 to 6 pupils visited the historical site and its unique food and flower gardens to present a collage of vegetables and fruits which the class had all grown from seed and then taken home to eat with their families.

Travel back in time and learn more about the local area and the people who shaped where we are today.
