 Butterflies on the Meadow

Our willow butterflies will be making a welcome reappearance sometime around the 16th July. They’ll be up on the meadow all summer, so do enjoy them while they’re there.  Many thanks to all the volunteers who attended the willow workshop on the 2nd July and learnt how to maintain and repair the butterflies – hopefully they can now become a regular feature every year!  Thanks to Nicola from SpongeTree for sharing her skills, we’re really grateful.

Walks around Northcliffe

There are now several walks on the Heritage Website. These include: a Heritage Walk, a Bird walk, a Wildlflowers walk, a Bat walk  and a series of Ageing well short walks

We now have 9 walking maps, each with the walks instructions and a map, two of these have a shorter and longer walk so there are 11 walks in total. They range from 10 minutes to an hour. Each one takes the walker to a bench or two! We couldn't fit all the walks onto one map so there will be 4 summary maps showing the walk from different entrances to Northcliffe - from the main gates; Cliffe Wood Gardens; Moorhead Lane; Avondale Road / Lynton Drive (for Old Spring Wood).

You can find all the details on the Heritage website site www.northcliffeheritage.org.uk
