Mid Nene Group raises £3000

Mid Nene Group raises £3000

At their 40th AGM, the Mid-Nene local group presented a donation of £3000 to the RSPB to support their research into the continuing decline of farmland birds. Other awards and presentations included long service awards for Janet and Tony Kirby, who have been selling nuts and seeds at the indoor meetings for ten years. Long service awards were also presented to Penny and Derek Elmer, who have been volunteering for local groups for 40 and 45 years respectively. A special award was also given to Ena Edwards, who retired from her role of local group secretary after almost 30 years of loyal service. Congratulations to all.
