Below are a set of clippings from the local press collected over the years which give a good idea about the activities of the society. Press items relating to specific projects are normally stored on the project website rather than on this society website. Click on the image to view the content.
We are always interested in encouraging more people from the local community to become actively involved in the work of the society either on the committee or maybe in one of the projects that are run, normally during the summer months. If you are interested/prepared to take on a role please contact the one of the members of the committee.
