Events

There are six lectures between October and April, and outdoor events with visits to local reserves and other places of interest organised throughout the year.  Both indoor and outdoor events are free and open to non-members; sometimes pre-booking is required. Donations to help with running costs such as hall bookings and refreshments are appreciated.  The sub-committee welcomes suggestions for future events.
