Walsham Wild Wood – update summer 2018

new wildwood sign carved from tree trunkThe Walsham Wild Wood held their second Midsummer Picnic on the 24th June. Unfortunately the football match and a very hot day resulted in fewer people attending than last year.  However the picnic was still a success with delicious donated food, plenty to drink and activities for the children including a new Nature Trail which took the them around the whole site.

The AGM was held on the 5th July. A quiet year was reported at the Wood but there was an unusual plant surprise when a clump of broom rape was found growing for the first time. This is a parasitic herbaceous plant with seeds that can be dormant in the soil for many years.

It was also reported that Alison Martin has stepped down as Secretary after 6 years.  Alison was was thanked for all her hard work and commitment to the project.  John Stebbing was elected as Secretary, Richard Belson was re-elected  as the Treasurer and Lorna MacKinnon was re-elected as Chair.
