Annual Meeting 2018 : An invitation

The Executive are pleased to announce that following the formal proceedings of our Annual Meeting on Friday 6 April 2018 members of the public are invited to two talks.

Come and learn about the enigmatic nightjars of the Humberhead Levels and discover how many of the 34 species Sphagnum found in the UK can be found on Thorne Moors.

Doors open to the public lectures at 11.00 for interested visitors.

The event is being held at Moorends Miners Welfare and Community Development Centre, West Road, Moorends, Thorne, DN8 4LH.

Visitors are encouraged to make use of the lunch time to network and to pick up publication bargains. The Centre has been booked until 3pm so people will be able to network amongst themselves.

 To help with the administrative aspects of the day booking is essential so please contact execsec@thmcf.org or write to T&HMCF, P O Box 879, Thorne, Doncaster, DN8 5WU

There is no charge for the talks but a donation in lieu for refreshments and light buffet lunch will be used towards the purchase of more research equipment (particularly the tags needed to track the nightjar activity).
