News from the Weekend

A big THANK YOU is necessary here. As we attended the Perry Vale Ward Assembly on Saturday, 27th October where we (the FoDWNR) bid for £2000. The bid was put in to get a digger in to remove some of the silt from the pond closest to Catling Close. Luckily we were successful in our bid, so my thank you is to all those who came along and voted in our favour.

My second thank you is to all those who came along, and braved the cold, to support the open day on Sunday, 28th. Sunday was the second ever meeting of the Friends of Dacres Wood and it was the Bring and Take day organised in conjunction with the Forest Hill Society. I know lots of people were very generous with both their time and their belongings, lots was brought along.

I hope all who came along had a great time, I know I did. The next Friends of Dacres Wood meeting is Saturday, 23rd February 2013 at 12.15pm.
