April News

On Saturday afternoon,  2nd April, some of us visited the boardwalk and pond areas following the storm earlier in the week to see how the open space had fared during the battering. We notice another three trees damaged by the winds but apart from this there was plenty of evidence that spring is well on the way – birds singing, frog spawn in the ditch and the emergence of a few wildflowers in the board walk. Here are samples of what we found:-
