A final word


Due to unplanned but necessary travel in December, unfortunately the activity we had planned didn’t happen. Many thanks indeed to all we collaborated with in 2016 to put events on, to Lush and Inder’s Kitchen for funding us, to OP Community Council and South Cambridgeshire District Council for their support, and to everyone who came to events and took action to help wildlife. We will be drafting our activity plan for 2017 early next year, we are looking at forging new links with existing groups. Having heard him speak in the Summer in the university building named after him, I’ll leave the last word of 2016 to David Attenborough ……

The Importance of your Gardens as Nature Reserves

In readiness for our next activity on 27th May….

IMG_1654Orchard Park Wildlife Project’s next two activities will be based on habitats. The most important things about habitat in a wildlife garden are: food, shelter, and water. Take a look at the RSPB website, it’s an A to Z of wildlife gardening for ideas on food, shelter, and water that you can add to your garden. http://www.rspb.org.uk/wildlife/wildlifegarden/habitats.aspx

Preferred date for OPWP committee meetings

At the last committee meeting we decided it would be best to set a regular meeting schedule. The third week in the month follows on from our recent and proposed schedule. Later weeks in the month are difficult for some OPWP committee members as they have OPCC tasks then. Many thanks for taking the time to respond, feel free to add comments for discussion.
