NEW WEB DESIGN

This is our new web-site, with a new design by Anna Williams and Clara Todd, programmed into pmwiki by Clara Todd, and set up by Nicola Terry using pmwiki with added functionality for the events management system. We hope you like it! We are still implementing it so several pages remain to be updated (get in touch if you'd like to help with this). Please let us know what you think. We'd love to hear if you like it, as well as any bugs you find, or suggestions for improvement. Many thanks to Anna, Clara and Nicola for all their hard work!

Saturday 22nd November: Wildlife Wanderings - Bramblefields LNR

Bramblefields Local Nature Reserve, Chesterton 14:15-16:00 add to google calendar
Join us for a wintery walk around Bramblefields Local Nature Reserve, in anticipation of the arrival of Redwings and Fieldfares. The European autumn draws in a migration of thrushes from Scandinavia and Russia, and Bramblefields LNR has been known as a great feeding site for these birds, who will winter in the UK until the weather warms up further north. Not only will we look out for our wintering neighbours, but we will also continue our hunt for fungal species amongst the scrub and the grasslands. Wildlife Wanderings is a friendly and informal gathering of local people who want to get to know their green spaces better and appreciate local wildlife. All are welcome, including families. Please bring lots of warm layers and good walking shoes. Do bring binoculars as well, if you have some. Meeting point: Laxton Way entrance to the Bramblefields site at 2.15pm for a 2.30pm start. Map and directions here. Contact Jade for more information.

Tuesday 25th November: Food Group meeting

Earl of Beaconsfield pub, 133 Mill Rd, Cambridge CB1 3AA 18:30-20:00 add to google calendar
Note new venue!! We'll be in the billiard room/library, which is at the back of the courtyard. At this meeting we'll be revisiting and hopefully finalising our slogan as well as updating on other projects. Join us - all welcome!
