Annual General Meeting & 130 years of the RSPB

Annual General Meeting & 130 years of the RSPB

Back in February we had hoped to run an event celebrating 130 years of the RSPB, which primarily began with meetings held in Croydon back in 1889. That event was, unfortunately, curtailed.
By way of compensation we have now managed to book Tessa Boase to talk at both the general meeting in the afternoon and the AGM in the evening. She will be telling us about those women (including Eliza Phillips of Croydon) who defied convention to fight the plumage trade. Her research into that led to the writing of her book 'Mrs Pankhurst's Purple Feather'. So, if you have already pencilled the date into your diary, please amend the entry to show that Tessa will be entertaining you, rather than one of the environment committee. We look forward to seeing you there.
