We have reorganised the AGM of the Trust - it's now Sunday 11 October at 12pm.
We're planning a working bee prior to the meeting so if you'd like to come and help for a couple of hours - nothing too arduous - attend the meeting and then have lunch we'd love to see you!
And here's hoping for better weather!
