Tue 11 Jun 2024 - 02 - Thrapston Lakes - 11th June

6:30pm

11th June - Thrapston Lakes - NN14 4GD - 6.30 - 7pm Start

Parking is free here and there is quite a lot of it so hopefully it will be quiet, there are quite a few paths on this trek and hides, more than happy to take the long trek or short walk (if the gate is open)

I've added a map for any who don't know where it is

Please see bulletin for diagram location

Tue 4 Jun 2024 - Rushden Summer Programme - Alphabet Challenge

6:00pm

A little extra fun which will have us looking around

For the duration of the summer programme 4th June – 2nd July I am setting an Alphabet challenge where you will compile/photograph objects that make up letters for the A-Z that you see on your outings. Letters cannot be arranged using plants or stones for example then photographed.

 Create a presentation or add them to a word document and append your alphabet along with your name and email it to me. Reviewing I will compile the alphabet using the most creative letters and display them at the Christmas Meal
