WICKEN Fen warden Ralph Sargeant has stepped down after 35 years' service - but will still be working alongside staff as a volunteer. Ralph, who started at the centre as Fenman, has a wealth of knowledge about wetland birds and butterflies which he will continue to share with staff. They threw a special retirement party for Ralph at the centre on Friday, inviting workers and volunteers past and present to wish him farewell. Head warden Martin Lester gave a talk during the afternoon and former staff member Grant Lohoar, who has since moved with the National Trust to work in Norfolk, gave a slide show of Ralph's earlier days. Ralph's retirement was celebrated with a cake and cards and presents.
