Landcare Bike Ride Sunday 6th November

The annual Muckleford Landcare bike ride is happening Sunday 6th November. Meet at the Muckleford train station at 10.45am for an 11am SHARP leaving time. It might be a rough ride because the track will have water damage, but we will push through!

We will hopefully end up at the Maldon Hotel for pizza in the beer garden for lunch, before riding back.

Wildflower Walk

It was a beautiful morning for our wildflower walk in the forest near Gower. Thanks to Eleanor for organising, and thanks to Eleanor and to Paul for helping with plant identification. We had 28 people attend, many taking photographs and enjoying the fields and fields of flowers. It was lovely to see new members, and we look forward to our next get together on 6th November for the annual bike ride!

Wildflower Walk

Join Muckleford Landcare on Sunday 23rd October, 10am-11.30am for a wildflower walk. We will meet and park on Sinclairs Lane (extension), and go for a ramble in a real wildflower hotspot. Wear your walking shoes and bring a friend!
