Your Parish Magazine Needs You

If you can spare time to assist in the editing of the parish magazine, please contact the parish clerk Sarah Vergette through the enquiries page an she will forward your details on.
The Magazine has now become established and it would be a shame to loose it.

A new voluntary practical conservation task programme has been set up by Norfolk Wildlife Trust to give everyone – whether you can join in regularly or not - the chance to ‘Take Action’ to make sure that we don’t lose our wild plants and animals because they have become isolated on one site.  Dozens of people have already been involved in a wide range of activities, including planting 750 trees, establishing a brand new wildflower area, and digging new ponds.
Whereas working on Norfolk Wildlife Trust nature reserves usually requires a regular commitment, for this programme of Living Landscape practical tasks you can just turn up for any session that you can get to (please note the practical tasks are open to anyone aged over 16).  Participants can explore some beautiful green spaces, meet new people, discover some unexpected plants and animals and learn new skills – all while taking action to improve the Bure Valley Living Landscape for people and wildlife.  All you need to take part are old working clothes suitable for the weather.
For more details contact the Living Landscape Officers, Gemma and Mark, by calling 01603 598 333 or via wild@norfolkwildlifetrust.org.uk   There’s also much more information about the Living Landscape events programme, which includes free training on a wide range of subjects, at www.mylivinglandscape.org.uk
