Programme for 2018

Most of our meetings are open to all and free to members.  Some meetings may require booking and visitors will normally be asked for a contribution.

Next Meeting:

Friday 26th January 2018, 8pm, Watlington Town Hall - Annual General Meeting, including a short talk updating us on the work of the Earth Trust including their River of Life project

Our 2018 programme begins with our Annual General Meeting to its usual format: a small amount of formal business, a review of last year and a preview of this, an outside speaker, then a chat and refreshments.

Our talk will be from Jenny Creese, joint Head of Communications and Engagement at the Earth Trust. She will be bringing us up to date with all that is happening at this Little Wittenham-based organisation, including their visionary River of Life project, which aims to transform 2km of Thames riverside habitat into a wildlife haven.

Adults £2.50, children £1, free to WEG members. Join for the whole of 2018 for just £7.50.
