Our 2020 AGM will be held on Thursday 16th April at 7.30pm at the Baptist Church Hall, Field Way, Mill End. Our guest speaker this time will be Nick Maksimovic, grazier (owner) of the several Dexter Cattle which we now host on the reserve as a means of encouraging wildflowers in the meadows. See our earlier news articles on the subject : Cattle on the Reserve (October 2018) and Cattle Introduction on June 8th (May 2019). Nick will use his talk to inform us about his cattle and their role on the reserve.

FoSL's 2019 Annual General Meeting was held on Thursday 18th April. Minutes of the meeting can now be downloaded from here. Our guest speaker was Paul Barritt, permanent guest leader of the Halle Chamber Orchestra and player with Tring Chamber Music. Paul fascinated us with his talk, "Birds and Music" which he punctuated with recordings and the occasional violin recital.
