Dates for your Diary
Meetings
Tue Oct 15th Ash: A Celebration at the Eleventh Hour - Archie Miles (10.30am)
Ash dieback disease, first described as being caused by the fungus Chalara fraxinea, has caused widespread devastation across Europe and UK since the early 1990's as infected trees died and the disease spread. The fungus has been renamed as research into it progresses, but what is the current situation? Do all ash trees die? If not, why are some spared? Tree-writer and photographer Archie Miles will explore all aspects of this threat to one of our most beloved broadleaf trees.

After lunch, at 1.15pm, weather permitting, we will venture out on a Woodland Walk to look at other tree species found in this area. Bring your wellies and raincoats - just in case!

Music-All
Tue Nov 5th 2pm Cusop Village Hall. The theme will be "Roads". Choices to John Price before the day please. Because of a concatenation of unavoidable circumstances the Allies were rather thin on the ground at our meeting on 1 October. Nevertheless the theme of all things celestial provided a rich and starry afternoon's entertainment. Word has it that Spike Milligan's "Irish Astronauts" put the Allies at serious risk of choking, whilst more sober stuff came with Holst (Jupiter) and the (inevitably) Beatles(Here Comes the Sun).
(Contact David Fry if you would like to come along)
Tue Dec 3rd 2pm Cusop Village Hall.
