An invitation to join us for the New Year Plant Hunt

We hope that this finds you well and as the winter solstice passed yesterday we can look forward to the day length drawing out.

The Shropshire Botanical Society are taking part in the thirteenth annual BSBI New Year Plant Hunt. We will be recording any plants that we find in bloom in Church Stretton and we would love to have your company for a festive field trip.

We are meeting at the car park by the Co-operative supermarket: Church Stretton, SY6 6BX at 10:00 AM on Sunday 31st December. We will walk a route around the town of Church Stretton and record wild and naturalised plants that are currently in flower. We will be no more than a couple of hours and once we are done we will hunt down a comfortable café and see if we can't find space for just one more mince pie.

Wishing you all a Happy Christmas and we hope to see you at the New Year Plant Hunt.
