And even an AGM, beforehand from 12.00. What more could anyone want?
Seriously, from 1-4pm Dacres Wood will be open for our regular last Saturday of the month Open Day. Dani will be organising an arts themed activity for kids, in anticipation of Dacres Wood being a major venue for the Sydenham Visual Arts Trail the following two weekends. Visitors to the Open Day may have a chance to meet some of the artists preparing for this.
At 1.15pm we will hold an official opening of the new bridge / walkway running across the pond at Dacres Wood, by our local Councillor Susan Wise.
The new bridge has been largely funded by the Perry Vale local assembly and allows visitors a closer look at the wildlife in and around the pond as well as providing a new route through and viewpoints of the reserve. We are promised a rather special ribbon for Susan to cut, made for us by Ema’s Secret Adventurers, who meet at Dacres Wood on Tuesday mornings.
As always, our Open Day is an opportunity for any one just to enjoy the space, and meet the Friends. If you want to get more involved, why not come along to our AGM, which will start at 12.00, and after a brief formal part, will be mainly a discussion about future plans and ideas.
