Upcoming Events

Friday, November 22nd 2013

There are several events planned at Foxglove over the Christmas period.  We have our annual Festive Willow Weaving morning on Friday 13th December where we will be making and decorating a beautiful Willow wreath.  This is a very popular event so be sure to book soon, below is the group and their wreaths from last year.

Our Christmas Party is on the 18th December, starting at 7pm at Wathgill Camp.  You will be treated to a delicious three course dinner as well as entertainment provided by the Compass Rose Ceilidh Band and musical contributions from some of the volunteers and bird ringers! Glennis and Pat have been working hard putting a quiz together for the evening.  Tickets for all this are only £12 per person.

On the 2nd January there will be a New Year Guided Walk.  Walk off some of the Christmas excess as we try to catch a glimpse of our overwintering birds, Roe Deer and talk about projects planned for the coming months.

We will also have activity sheets and self-guided walks out in the classroom during the school holidays.

If you are interested in booking on any of these events please complete the booking form on the events page or contact Adam via e-mail (foxglovelnr@btinternet.com).

Leap Into Nature!

Celebrate the Leap Year by learning about the hidden wildlife at the reserve. We will begin by identifying the moths in the moth trap (weather permitting) and then take a walk around the different habitats to see what is about. 

Come with a notepad to log the number of species, come with a camera to take some wonderful photos, or just come along as you are for a beautiful, enjoyable, informative walk.

Booking is essential as places are limited.

Suggested minimum donation of £5 per person. Please donate in advance to secure a place.

This event is free for Volunteers and Friends of the reserve.
