The Grapevine Parish Magazine entry for February 2018

Twenty four members of our group enjoyed a splendid New Year Dinner at the Sports Club on Sunday 7th January.  The staff, with their usual courteous manner, provided a delicious meal and it was good to sit at round tables where everyone could join in the lively conversations. If anyone would like to join us next year you’d be made most welcome.

Our next talk ‘The Disappearing Hedgehog‘ by local expert Toni Bunnell will appeal to many. It takes place in the small Reading Room on Wednesday 28th February at 8.00pm, free to members, £1.50 for non-members to help with expenses.

Did you know that Friends of Hagg Wood membership is only £4 a year, £6 for families? For that small amount you get 2 Newsletters a year, 3 illustrated indoor talks, 2 cycle rides, plus other excursions of Conservation interest. Is that good value or what? In return you help us to manage the wood for wildlife and see the display of bluebells expand year by year.

We always have fun at our working parties, this year planned for Saturdays 10th Feb, 10th March, 21st April, 26th May, 9th June and 21st July. Please check our website: www.fohw.org.uk  if you’d like more details about our future events.

We’d just like to remind you that your present Committee are not getting any younger (though still young in mind!)  New faces would be a terrific bonus for us. Can we not fulfil any of your New Year Resolutions?
