This week Winter is upon us – the temperature has certainly dropped and we are facing the prospect of ground frosts later this week. As I write this there are just 12 days to our special Christmas event and 18 days to Christmas. May I take this opportunity to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Let’s hope that 2023 sees an end to the war in Ukraine, no more crises in the world caused by global warming, and an end to coronavirus!
Last week Ian Packham wowed us with his presentation on his 13 month trip around the whole of Africa. He was a very brave and determined young man and there was nobody in the audience who would have dared to take on such a challenge.
