With a successful start to the group’s programme of talks, the North Notts Local Group of Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust are now looking forward to the AGM in April and a talk about another reintroduction to this part of Nottinghamshire: the dormouse! The reintroduction has gone well; the sleepy creatures have established themselves and begun to spread further afield – a really good sign that all is well and the environment is just what they like.

The speaker on this occasion will be Lorna Griffiths, hard-working and enthusiastic leader of the Dormouse Project. She’s been ably assisted by a conscientious group of volunteers who have monitored, weighed, measured and fed countless dormice over many months. Let’s hope the little things continue to thrive.

The AGM will offer an opportunity, after such a long break, to rethink the function of the local group and how it can best engage with members – and perhaps attract more people to meetings and encourage them to do their bit for wildlife. The AGM is on Saturday 30th April 2.00pm to 4.00pm, so if you want to hear about the dormice and meet the committee members, old and new, go along. There will be a £3.00 charge, which will include tea, coffee and biscuits.
