Watch this space!
As lockdown eases, we have been able to open up discussions with landowners and seek permission for events to take place. We have a list of several low key local style events we aim to hold each month through to the summer. We have to be patient and wait for permissions to be granted as everyone is still learning exactly what will be possible as restrictions ease. This is also the season for ground nesting birds, so opportunities for access are more limited.
So watch this space, and the website, for more news on the following events (see below).
