Happy New Year 2020!

One of the last sunsets of December 2019 over the Long Mynd was an absolute stunner.


It was quickly back to foggy and atmospheric in the following days but very mild and the birds started to sing at the turn of the year.  I hope you all enjoyed your festive holidays and have lots of  botanical new year's resolutions to get stuck into.  We're looking forward to organising this year's field meetings, so if you have any special requests for locations, send us a comment, an email, facebook message or better still see you on Jan. 25th for the indoor social and talk at FSC Preston Montford, Shrewsbury, SY4 1HW at 2-4pm.  Harriet Carty, Director of Caring for God's Acre, will be giving a talk about The Beautiful Burial Ground, a project to bring together records from churchyards and make them easily accessible.
