Friends of the Shuttle, the dynamic local group now doing management work on the River Shuttle and Wyncham Stream, Danson Park lake and in the Danson Park Old English Garden, has as a result gained a lot of new recruits during the year. Consequently there was a strong turnout at their Christmas social in ‘The Black Horse’ in Old Bexley on Friday (18th December).
Ordinarily this is held jointly with the Thames21 River Cray team, but most of its regulars were otherwise engaged on this occasion.
The Christmas cards handed out to volunteers, featuring photographs of FotS at work during 2015 was a nice touch.
Fun and friendliness are very much hallmarks of FotS operations, and new recruits are welcome to get involved with the busy schedule of hands-on conservation events through 2016. Follow this website’s calendar page for advance details.
