Dear Friends
A happy and peaceful New Year to everyone. It is time again to let you know about our January LunchBox talk which will take place in the Friends Meeting House in Upper Goat Lane, Norwich on Friday 16th January 2015 at 1pm.
The talk will be given by David North – Head of people and Wildlife at the Norfolk Wildlife Trust.  David will talk about “Cley Marshes – a wild vision.”
Cley Marshes is Norfolk Wildlife Trust’s (NWT) oldest and best known nature reserve.  It was purchased in 1926 to be held “in perpetuity as a bird breeding sanctuary” .  It provided a blue print for nature conservation which has now been replicated across the UK.  The water levels in the pools and reedbeds are regulated to ensure they are ideal for the resident birds and reed is harvested every year to keep the reedbeds in good condition.
This should be a fascinating talk covering a vision for the future of the marshes and I hope you will all be able to come.
with best wishes,
Marguerite
