Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to cancel the open day on Saturday 25th September. We hope to be open again on Saturday 30th October. Apologies for those who were hoping to come.
Thank you all who joined our meeting last week. We had a very busy agenda starting with a presentation by Steve Bolton from Butterfly Conservation about their new 4-year project, Big City Butterflies. There are many opportunities to get involved in the project (e.g. receiving training, organising events, get advice on habitat management) so please find further details in the presentation attached and contact Steve (firstname.lastname@example.org) directly if you would like to be involved in any activities.
It has been a long time since Nature's Gym has been able to function normally, but we are pleased to announce that from July 2021, we will be back to full strength!

If you are one of our regulars, you will receive a new programme shortly. This will no longer be on a booking system, but we will ask you to confirm if you are coming or not to make it easier to plan tasks and work.
