Flights of Fancy

Flights of Fancy

Brian Nobbs returned to talk about the flexibility of feathers as birds' solution to flight, warmth, display or camouflage, waterproofing and most of their needs.


As usual in January, we fitted in a quick AGM first.
Some committee changes this year - perhaps you could consider joining us, we would really appreciate some more help. If not on the committee, maybe in another role (e.g. meet & greet as people arrive downstairs, help with refreshments at tea interval, sell raffle tickets, help make our Facebook page more interesting etc.)

If you click on the 'Download file' link, then you will see the striking poster that David (our Publicity officer) produced to advertise this talk.
We distribute the poster to libraries, supermarkets (many have Community Notice boards) and have managed to get it displayed on some of Redbridge's Community Notice boards (e.g. in Wanstead High Street).

If you have any suggestions of other places to advertise that may encourage more people to come to our talks, we would be glad to hear them.
