We also arrange various other events throughout the year.

Coach trips

In severe weather, a trip may be cancelled. Check with Trish Watts.

Non-members can book for coach trips but will have to pay an extra £10. This includes membership of our Local Group until the end of the year. 

A few seats are available free of charge for accompanied young people (age 12-18). Contact Trish Watts to book a free seat.

Fundraising events

Each year our group raises large sums for the RSPB. These range from stalls at local events, jumble sales, plant sale and more.

Social events

We arrange several social events each year. This is a way for people to get to know each other better and are usually only open to members of our local group.

Holidays

Two holiday trips are organised each year.  Usually we have one longer one in the spring and a shorter one in the autumn.  Participation in holiday trips is restricted to our members.

Special events

We sometimes arrange bird ID sessions and other special events. See individual event for details.

When possible we will include events at local RSPB reserves
