Wildlife Talks to start in the new year.

A series of Wildlife Talks are set to start in January hosted on the fourth Wednesday of each month at the Annex, St Lawrence Church. The talks will cover a range of subjects and will be suitable for all ages and open to all.

There will be a charge of £4 per talk with proceeds after running costs going to the speaker’s charity. Hopefully, further donations will be made through a regular raffle and other fundraising activities.

All talks will start at 8pm with doors opening at 7.30. Numbers are restricted so it will be best to book your tickets in advance to avoid disappointment. This can be done by emailing  slwildlifetalks@gmail.com prior to each event.
