Autumn Celebration

The rain held off last Sunday afternoon at Galleywall, though we had the awning and a gazebo up just in case! We got the kettle on, and Christine and Juliet brought cake and biscuits, as well as some marshmallows to
toast on the fire. 

It's definitely autumn now with leaves falling, and the rain does mean that the pond is filling up again after getting quite low during the dry summer. Hopefully all the frogs have found somewhere safe to see out the
winter and will return to lay frogspawn in the spring! 

The reserve won't be open in December or January, but our AGM is likely to be on the 19th January. All are welcome to attend in order to contribute ideas and energy for running the reserve. We're particularly looking for someone interested in permaculture, and individuals to plan our spring/summer 2016 events. Please do get in touch if you are interested.

Sun 15th Nov: Autumn Celebration!

After a fantastic fungi and foraging tour last month, join us again at Galleywall this coming Sunday (15th November) between 2 and 4pm for an Autumn Celebration. We'll have tea and cakes; as ever you can try out our Nature Trail and do some pond-dipping; and we'll do a bit of tidying up around the reserve as winter approaches.

The reserve won't be open in December and January, so this is your last chance for this year to come and enjoy our little bit of urban greenery. The weather is predicted to be mild so do come and join us.
