The Rushcliffe Country Park have released their winter & spring programme of activities for children between 8 and 13. Follow this link for full details Wildlife Watch programme Winter to Spring 2020.5
This event did not get listed in the Trust Whats On, but will be happening on Sun 26th April from 10 till 3 with a guided walk at 11am, children’s activities and info about woodland history. A great chance to visit an ancient woodland with the spring wildflowers in bloom – not only bluebells but the white of greater stichwort and yellows of the lesser cellandine

By the way the full summer Wildlife Walks programme for Rushcliffe is now available in the Diary section.
Our third annual pub quiz at the Poppy and Pint in Ladybay was the best ever. All the tables were taken (we could have filled more) and a good night was had by all. There were a few “stinkers” in the questions, which the quiz master claims are to separate the winning team from the rest, but others of us suspect it is just to see the confused looks on our faces ! All I will say is “Floating in the air” and Aled Jones. The winning team was only one point ahead and second place had to go to a tie break.
Besides a fun night, our object was to raise funds for NWT and this we also did making a total of £470. This is all “free” cash thanks to support from the Poppy & Pint in particular, but also Notts County FC, Notts County Cricket Club, West Bridgford ASDA, Clifton Morrisons + individual donations and of course the hard work of our quiz master Neil Glenn and all the South Notts LG “elves” who took money, sold raffle tickets and generally organized stuff etc etc.
