People We Miss

June’s event was a little bit of a departure for the group.  Rather than a single speaker, we had five!

We had a successful AGM on 21st June, with a total of ten members and supporters present. 

Conservation Walk June 14

Some warm early summer weather was enjoyed by the volunteer litter pickers at Warleigh Point on 8th June. 

June 14 Book Club - The God of Small Things

The God of Small Things was the subject of June’s book club.  The author’s style invoked mixed feelings, but the story itself gave us plenty of scope for disusing how small events can shape people’s lives.  As often happens, the discussion around the book itself soon moved onto wider issues and the small group of members taking part had a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
