The Wildlife group started in September 2017 since when we have had a number of interesting meetings. Some have been sharing our experience and expertise through meetings in members' homes and others visiting places of interest for wildlife. Please note that from January 2019 we will meet on the third Friday at 1 p.m. instead of 2 p.m.
If you would like to come please email Jane Williamson who is the current leader and can be contacted via the message box.
We try to share transport for visits, so attendance is still possible for non-drivers.
Our first two meetings for 2019 are as follows:
Friday, 18 January: Mick Poulton will give a talk on 'Basic Botany'. This is designed to help those of us who lack a scientific background in this area to understand the basics of how plants work - water, food, sun etc.
Friday, 15 February: Peter Orme will share in words and photos something of the recent trip he and Pat made to the Galapagos Islands.
Both of these meetings start at 1.00 p.m. at New Road Methodist Church (where we have the monthly meetings).
There will be no March meeting as the date we would meet has been set aside for our Celebration/Reaching Out event at St. Thomas' Church Hall.
In April we will have an outside visit, details to be confirmed but this will be on 12 April (to avoid the Easter weekend).
We are not a group of experts but share an interest in wildlife (viewed from many directions) and work together to enjoy and learn.
