Ashwell Quarry

Thursday, 14 July 2022 - 2:30pm

If sunny, we will hopefully see butterflies etc as well as plants. Led by Chris James, a member of LALG and Honorary Warden of the quarry.

Meet in the reserve car park in Loves Lane, off Hinxworth Road SG7 5HZ, a small field just beyond a barn conversion with unmarked steel gate. To offer or request car sharing, please contact Sue well beforehand.

Zoom Meeting

Although we are on Zoom, our discussions beforehand may prompt us to go out to a wild place we can reach within half an hour. (So it may not be very wild!). Please get in touch if you’d like to join us.

Meet via Zoom

If you have not joined us before please get in touch for a chat if you would like to know more about Wilding! Please contact Sue for zoom details.

Bluebell walk (time tbc)

Details of our Bluebell walk will be sent to members by email nearer the time. There is also another walk around Heartwood Forest that day. We plan to go to Hexton Chalk Pits on a Wednesday or Thursday in June.

Meeting via Zoom

The Wilding Group is exploring the different ways that LALG members view the different aspects of the environment. We share information and hope that we inform each other about issues and contacts that are valuable to us all.

Please get in touch with Sue (see Contact Details panel) if you would like to join in.

Zoom meeting

Whether or not you were able to join our first zoom meeting in February, you are invited to join us for this meeting.

Wilding Group

This group started in January 2022 by looking at the Council’s plans for greening and wildflower planting. It is growing fast.

Although we are on Zoom, our discussions beforehand may prompt us to go out to a wild place we can reach within half an hour. (So it may not be very wild!).

If you are interested in joining this group, please contact Sue Lines; see the Contact Details panel.

Open Gardens - Virtual Tours

Letchworth Open Gardens is happening virtually this year - the website launches on Sunday 28 June with some lovely photos and videos of plants and gardens.  Do go and have a look.

Ivel Springs

A small group of us enjoyed a stroll at Ivel Springs where we shared the meadow with wild flowers, plenty of butterflies and four long-horned cattle.

No further outings will be organised until Spring 2019.
