More talking and walking

October 2, 2006 2006 Autumn No Comments

From the secretary, Tom Snow

The Annual General Meeting was held on May 4 and it was a great encouragement to see more than 50 members attending. Thank you. We have continued to do our best to promote knowledge, enjoyment and participation of the Copse with a mixture of “talks and walks”.

An evening “Introduction to the Copse” walk was conducted for the Summersdale Residents’ Association and two further walks and a talk for the general public as part of the Chichester Festivities. All were well attended. We are grateful to the Chichester Natural History Society and the Sussex Wildlife Trust for their help with the themed walks that took in butterflies, bats and moths. A more detailed report on the latter walk is here. Visits to the Copse was also made by the judges as part of “Chichester in Bloom” award scheme and by the Havant Natural History Society. Further talks were given at St Wilfrid’s Hall and to a local Rotary Club.

If you feel a group you are involved in or know of would like a walk or a talk do let us know. We would also welcome other ideas on how to better involve people in the Copse, particularly youngsters, and how to make more of the historical and archaeological aspects. Answers on a postcard please…
