News from Florence

Tuesday, November 27th 2012

Our Chairman Col. Guy Deacon and Fee completed the Florence Maraton in 4hrs 35 and 5hrs 30, raising over £10,000 for The Cure Parkinsons Trust.  Congratulations from everyone at Foxglove on this fantastic achievement.  If anyone would like to donate to this excellent cause please visit the Team Deacon Just Giving page.


Heavy rain has once again been affecting the reserve; large puddles are forming on the waterlogged soils all around, and the Field Centre even sprung a leak!  Luckily roofing contractors arrived quickly and fixed the problem before it became too serious.
