July 4th Birds of Castle Park. Meet at Rangers Station at 8am finish approx. 9.30am

Get Wild in Colchester’s Castle Park. Learn to use your ears to ID birds of the park. Led by ‘The Birds of Essex’ author Simon Wood.

No booking necessary.

July Thurs 13th – a trip to Lavenham with a guided walk around village then the option of visit to Little Hall house and garden. Arriving around 10am would allow time to visit a café before gathering outside the Guildhall in the Market Square at 11am for a guided tour around Lavenham. This will take 1½ hours and finish at St Peter and St Paul’s Church, a Grade I listed parish church, which you would then be able to look around. It is a notable wool church and regarded as one of the finest example of Late Perpendicular Gothic architecture in England.

Now we take a break, there is a large choice of venues in Lavenham for lunch, and we would meet again at Little Hall in the Market Square at 2.30pm when we will be given a talk before making our way around. The house opens 1 to 4pm and the entrance charge is £4pp.

I/We would like to attend.

If you would wish a place reserved, at the Lavenham Blue Tea Room in Market Square, for refreshments before the guided tour, please let me know when you complete your booking slip.
