Christmas is Coming!

Wednesday, November 21st 2012

The festive season is just around the corner and there is plenty going on at Foxglove for anyone who would like to join in. Coming events include the December winter worky day, willow weaving, volunteer Christmas lunch, Foxglove Christmas party and a guided walk for Friends of Foxglove. Please get in touch if you would like to book onto any of these as places are limited. See the events section for more details. In the Field Centre there are several Christmas items now on sale from calendars and cards to jars of Foxglove honey and sweets. If you are stuck for a gift idea for someone who has everything why not adopt a bird box or bat box for them, a certificate makes an unusual present and can be posted out for you too! There is even reindeer food available in sachets! Here is Santa's little helper making up a bulk order of reindeer food for the man himself who has ordered 50 packets! Thanks to Sally and Richard for organising the cards and calendars and to Elizabeth and Ruth for making up Rudolph's mix and Christmas hampers.

Outside there is a huge amount of habitat work to be done this winter. Net ride maintenance began today with the pollarding of large willow trees and removal of Silver Birch along one of the main bird ringing net rides. With around 50 net rides in total, this work is like the Forth Road Bridge!

Finally, raffle tickets are now on sale in the Field Centre for the luxury hampers. Tickets cost £1 each and the winner will be announced at the Christmas party on 19th December.
