Villages in North Yorkshire Quiz Results

Monday, November 4th 2013

Many thanks, once again, to all those who supported the Quiz. This was the most successful in terms of those who purchased it, and well over a hundred were sold. So far, somewhere in the region of £500 has been raised to help towards the running costs of the reserve. Our gratitude to Pat Thistlethwaite who spends many hours compiling the clues, and is already thinking of the next one! Thanks to Glennis and Joan for all their hard work and sales tactics!

The results:

Tony and Lilian Cooper 39

Michael Fenwick 39

Viv Winter 38

Ted and Val Darwin 38

Mr and Mrs Whitehead 37

Trish Illingworth 33

As there were two people with 39, their names were put into a hat, and the winners of the £10 voucher are Tony and Lilian Cooper. Congratulations to you both!

Leap Into Nature!

Saturday 29th February 2020 | 10.30am start

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.



March Winter Worky Day

Saturday 7th March 2020 | 10.00am - 3.00pm

Join our staff and volunteers for a fun day of practical habitat management tasks.  Specific tasks will be chosen nearer the time.  Come ready for all weather conditions and bring your oldest outdoor clothes as tasks will be mucky and may involve bonfires.

Booking is essential for this FREE event as a hot cooked lunch will be provided along with delicious homemade cakes.
