May 2019 Meeting

Our May 7th event was a country ramble around the Earlswood Lakes. Graham and Janet kindly collected 11 members plus a retired member from the village, and we set off soon after 7pm with a guest.

There were a range of routes to suit all abilities. The evening was cool, but at least it stayed dry, and we were warm by the time we arrived at The Plough at St John’s. There we enjoyed a range of wines, ales and ciders, and food.

“A decorative bird box trail has been installed on Earlswood Common, with a total of 23 eye-catching nest boxes installed around the lake paths. The bird boxes themselves were made by the Men in Sheds group, and were then decorated by local artists and some of the council’s own Greenspaces staff. The finished items were put up in February [2018].” One quirky birdbox used a teapot. We didn’t stick to the birdbox trail, but did spot about 10. 


We next meet on Tuesday 4th June for our Tipplers’ Stroll, starting at 7pm. Our hosts will provide wine and nibbles. Please contact Francis for the venues.
