ANYONE FOR VOLUNTEERING?

Help! We need some volunteers to help at an event being held by RSPB at Wyre Forest Visitor Centre on Saturday and Sunday 23/24 July from 10am to 4pm. There will be a number of activities for young people and help is needed for these - dragonfly making, animal masks, badge making and dissecting owl pellets. I have put my name down for one day but several more people are needed. You don't need to do a whole day - a morning or afternoon stint would be fine. Please support your local group in this endeavour and ring Frances Evans on 01905 359132 if you would like to help.

GROUP STALWART DIES

It is with regret that I report the death of Diana Fraser. Diana and her late husband Keith were members of the local group for at least 25 years and together ran the RSPB sales table at our indoor meetings and any outside events that we were participating in. They did this regularly for many years and only stopped when RSPB HO changed the system which they felt they couldn't cope with at their time of life. We owe Keith and Diana a great debt of gratitude and it is a matter of regret that no one could be found willing to take on this task that they performed so well for so many years.

A reminder that the Group's AGM is on Wednesday 14th September at Powick Village Hall.
