Painswick Beacon Conservation Group

Dear Member,

Here are a mixture of items for you!

TUESDAY 8TH APRIL Joint Meeting with the Bird Club 7.30 p.m. in Painswick Town Hall. The history and wildlife of the Forest of Dean an illustrated talk from expert naturalist Andrew Bluett. Identify yourself as a PBCG member and get in for £1 (normally £3). Andrew’s photographs and knowledge are highly regarded

THURSDAYS, 10th and 17th APRIL. Joint Working Parties with Cotswold Wardens in Long Quarry. We are fortunate to have their help in the clear up of felled trees’ branches on the two days. Do come and swell the numbers. We will start from 9 a.m. on site, joined by the Wardens from 9.30 a.m. They bring coffee and lunch, and work on till 2 p.m.+. Feel free to come and go as suits you, but please help the planning by letting me know if you will be joining in. (812624).

Skittles. The skittles evening at Painswick Centre on March 25th went well. We were only a dozen or so but we had great fun and earnest conversations! We plan to do something similar in the near future, especially for those who missed out in March. Let me know if you are interested, and we will see when the alley is available. With a select team we can challenge other Clubs etc?

Thank you to all those who have helped at our work party (slashers!) sessions this last season September – March. We have achieved a huge amount and now receive compliments from passers by and others we meet in the village. It is particularly gratifying to me that recently we have averaged 10 volunteers each Saturday, about TWICE what it was a year ago. Also there have been extra weekday and weekend sessions to meet the challenging programme we set ourselves. The big party planned for 25th March did not attract sufficient numbers, but, undaunted, the committee is looking at options for a summertime ‘do’ (probably outdoors) to celebrate being ‘21’ and to provide a treat for all our supporters.

Thank you again.

David Allott
