Wednesday 27th February – A great talk by Alastair Fairley MA FRSA, Chairman of the Appeal Board, Rye Harbour Discovery Project at Sussex Wildlife Trust on how they are working to promote green and eco-tourism in the region.
Friday 26th April – We had a fantastic tour of Boldshaves Garden shown around by our President, Peregrine Massey, the hard work he has put into producing 10 acres of such wonderful gardens is amazing. This was followed by a very relaxed Wine tasting by Sedlescombe Master of Wine, John Brownsdon, themed French “Boozecruzes”.
Wednesday 8th May – Mike Bax gave us a talk on conservation and how they were managing the land to grow some beautiful wild flowers and a habitat that the nightingales are thriving in. We were definitely in luck and were surrounded later on by at least 4 nightingales singing for a mate. The event raised £50 for the Kent Wildlife Trust and £275 for WKPS.
