The Trust’s Annual Public Meeting was held in Conford Village Hall on Wednesday 13th November with a very good turnout for a damp evening.
At the conclusion of the formal part of the meeting, refreshments were provided by the Trustees followed by an extremely well-received talk by David Elliott, Head Ranger of the National Trust at Black Down regarding regeneration of the their area’s natural habitat and the recently-approved introduction of a small number of European beavers in a closely managed remote area as part of a national reintroduction scheme.

The Annual Picnic - Our Annual Fundraising Pimms Party by the River - was on Saturday 6th July
The Picnic this year was in Conford in brilliant sunshine...
We have now completed some 38 visits with schools, events, and festivals this year with about 2500 people having used (played with!) the sandbox.
Our thanks to those hosting the sandbox and RWT display at NT Dapdune Wharf, Gilbert White's House, and in other school trips. Plus quite a few (rather older 'kids' ) at River Wey Festival, the Groundswell Agriculture Show over two days at the end of June with Affinity Water, and an interesting Corporate event with South Staffs/Cambridge Water
Future outings - including some Public events - are shown in the Calendar
