Mr. and Mrs. Anthony Lyle Skyrme will host a garden event at their home, Broadward Hall, Clungunford, in aid of The Conservation Trust for St. Laurence, Ludlow.
There will be three Speakers Professor Michael Robinson, his wife Dr. Ann Robinson and Mike Kelly.
Over a period of some 20 years, the Robinsons created and nurtured a wild flower meadow at their home at Northridge Meadows in Monmouthshire. The talk will be illustrated with photographs from Northridge Meadows – a registered Wildlife Site.
Mike Kelly is a Natural Environmental Officer with the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty team in Craven Arms. One of his interests is the River Clun, one of only three rivers in England designated to be a ‘Site of Special Scientific Interest’, as is the Broadward Estate itself. The River Clun runs through the Broadward Estate and is home to rare and vulnerable wildlife, such as otters, water voles, kingfishers, dippers, white-clawed crayfish and freshwater pearl mussels. Following his talk, Mike will guide a walk along the river bank for those wishing to join him.
