After the success of our first event, the ‘Bexley Wildlife’ team (a web platform collaboration between Bexley Natural Environment Forum and the Greener Bexley Charity) are pleased to invite ‘followers’ and other interested people to join us at another social on Wednesday October 14th from 7p.m. at Bexley Village Library. The library is situated at the junction of Bourne Road and Albert Road, near to Bexley railway station and various bus routes.
Light refreshments will be available for purchase from the library cafe, but attendees are welcome to bring their own, including alcoholic beverages. Some of us may repair to a local hostelry afterwards, and people will – of course – be free to come and go as they please.
The evening will be largely informal, but we are again lining up three short talks of up to 10 minutes duration each to provide a bit of focus. We have decided this time to have them all grouped together early on rather than spread out during the evening, so as to provide a prompt for further discussion and to avoid breaking up everyone’s conversations later. The talks will probably start sometime between 7.30 and 8.00 p.m. Precise details will be furnished nearer the time.
Our friends from just over the border at Ruxley Gravel Pits, a Site of Special Scientific Interest, and the Lesnes Abbey Woods Conservation Volunteers have agreed to speak about their sites, the wildlife on them and their management work. We are awaiting confirmation on the third slot, but have several potential subjects we can fill it with.
The event is open to anyone with an interest in wildlife and sustainability issues in the Borough, whatever their current level of expertise or involvement. Our aim is send everyone home a little bit better informed and more enthusiastic about the subject, as well as with some new friends and useful contacts!
The event will end at about 10.00 p.m.
