Group presence at local shows – September 2023.

It has been a busy few weeks. We were very pleased to have attended Newton St Loe Farm Open Day on Bank Holiday Monday, Wellow show on 2nd September and then on 9th September at Bathampton Village. Committee members and wonderful volunteers made sure that all three events were fully covered where we engaged with the public about birds, our local group activities and our wonderful local RSPB reserves, especially on the Somerset Levels. All 3 were excellent shows, all in beautiful weather and far too hot on 9th September – we wilted. Several new membership forms were taken, and 1 signed up on the day. As ever pin badges were popular as were RSPB sales goods and leaflets on gardening for birds and dealing with cats. We were also entertained by the lovely Twerzels at Newton, exceptional ferret racing at Wellow and Morris Dancers (yes, in over 30 degrees!) at Bathampton. We were delighted to support all these lovely local shows and look forward to return visits in 2024.
