As the autumn evenings lengthen there is no need to hibernate. Why not go along to one of the monthly indoor meetings organised by the Trust’s seven Local Groups.
A varied programme of meetings should provide something of interest to people of all ages and you do not need to be a member of the Trust to join in.
