Wickhambrook Horticultural Society Reports

june 2006

Our meeting in June was a talk on the work of the Suffolk Wildlife Trust throughout the County.  Mrs Grimwade from Ipswich is one of the thousands of volunteers for the Trust and she is passionate about her interest in wildlife.  This passion came out in the beauty of her slides which she brought along.  We travelled through Bradfield Woods to Redgrave and Lopham Fens and then along the Suffolk coast and various estuaries. and many places in between.  We learnt about how land is managed to encourage wildlife and also how wild flowers are encouraged to grow on certain sites. 

We are very lucky in this part of East Anglia because there are lots of wildlife and plant life to be seen which is not so in many parts of Britain, but this is so only because of the work of the Trust.  Lackford Lakes near Bury St Edmunds is one of three sites where the Suffolk Wildlife Trust has inter-active activities especially designed for children and education.  The children are taught about the care of the countryside and how important it is to look after wildlife and to provide habitats for them so that they flourish.  Mrs Grimwade was warmly thanked for her interesting and enlightening talk.  She had made many of us want to pack a picnic and go and explore some of the many regions we had been to by seeing her slides. 

Members were reminded about the Flower Show on the 8th July.  There are still FREE Schedules available from the Shop and from Steve Coe on 01440 920764.  Please have a look through the Schedule and see what you can enter.  There are sections on flowers and vegetables, flower arranging and all sorts of handicrafts, cookery and also various items for children to enter.  The Chairman pointed out that if everyone had a go at just one thing, whatever it may be, then we would have a lovely Show.  The Flower Show in the M.S.C. Hall is open from 2 p.m. and entrance is 50p. (free for children).  So do come along and have a look around.  As well as the Flower Show, the Carnival Committee have organised various events,  and these begin at 12 noon on the field.
