Talks & Events 2022/23
Our meetings are held in St Mary’s Church, Kirtlington, on the first Wednesday of the month from October to April at 7.45pm (except for the January meeting which is on the second Wednesday). We are taking a “hybrid” approach offering members the option to attend in person at the church or to join via Zoom. Our annual subscription is £12 and we ask for £2 to attend a single lecture. To support our work around the village, we welcome larger donations. Please either give your subs or donation to one of the committee members or contact Ian Stone (firstname.lastname@example.org) for Internet payment details. Those in full time education can attend for free.
Our lectures for the current season are as below.
Wednesday October 5: What might the government’s tree planting project mean for our birds? Emma Gardner, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology.
