We have reluctantly decided to POSTPONE this event due to the deteriorating Covid-19 situation. A new date in the Spring will be announced soon.
The event was planned for Saturday 4th December for an afternoon of learning, culture and engagement with the natural world - a chance for Wealden residents to discover and share practical steps we can all take to protect biodiversity in our own gardens and in local green spaces.
