Wednesday 25th May - Urban Buzz York & AGM
Woodlands provide especially fertile areas for insects to flourish, to the benefit of local birdlife and other wildlife. The importance too of bees and other insect pollinators to the human food chain is increasingly recognised. Harry Woolner and the Urban Buzz York team (see https://www.buglife.org.uk/urban-buzz/york). are now actively aiming to improve our local natural environment for them to flourish. Harryís illustrated talk will immediately follow our AGM. Meet at 8pm in the Reading Room. Admission is free to members, non-members £1.50, and refreshments 50p.
Saturday 4th June - Celebration Time
We will be celebrating our 20th Anniversary in the wood from 2pm-4pm today, with Dunnington Community Choir and the popular local folk group Woodsmoke. An event not to be missed.
Saturday 6th August - Brockfield Hall Cycle Ride
Another chance for some healthy exercise and fresh air. Meet outside the childrenís play park on Intake Lane at 10.30am. We will aim to stop for refreshments at Breezy Knees en route and be at Brockfield Hall (admission £7 or free to HHA members) near Warthill by 1pm.
