The Friends of Studham Common gain national recognition
THERE ARE TWO WORK PARTIES THIS MONTH:
*On Tuesday 15th October, the (Wonderful) Wendover Woods Working Group are coming to help us clear holly and plant hazel in the woodland on West Common. The aim is to reduce the dominance of holly and begin to create more variety in the ‘understory’ in this area.
*On Saturday 19th October we have our normal work party. The planned hedgelaying has been postponed until next month. Instead we will be doing planting and maintenance to enhance the dormouse habitat on East Common.
*You are most welcome to join us for either or both work parties. Meet at the War Memorial (village centre opposite the Red Lion) at 10 am. To help us with catering and planning, please let me know if you plan to be there. My contact details are Pam Rumfitt 01582 872608 firstname.lastname@example.org
Don’t miss our ANNUAL PARTY at the Village Hall, on Friday 8th November, at 7.30pm. If you can bring your friends and make up a table that would be great. But if you can’t fill a table, please don’t let that stop you coming!! All details on the attached flyer. It’s formatted two to the page so you can print it off and hand it round to potential takers. Please contact Denis Davison for further information or to book your tickets.
FUN FOR KIDS ON THE COMMON:
Gill Harris attended the workshop I mentioned last month (thanks Gill!) and several others have said they are interested in helping with activities for children. We’ve lots of ideas – now the challenge is putting them into action! If you would like to help, please do call or email me. Meanwhile, here is news of an inspirational documentary about reconnecting children with nature. ‘Project Wild Thing’ is going on general release through Picture House cinemas on 26th October. Sadly, there don’t seem to be any showings locally (London is the nearest). BUT there is a special preview at Whipsnade Village Hall on Saturday 19th October at 7.30pm. Admission £3.
