SDN Members an event for you! Learn to love Moths!

Many of our members will know about “Caring for God’s Acre” Beautiful Burial Ground Project. Shropshire Disability Network have been fortunate to be included in various sessions they have hosted for our members ie “Archives Department at Shrewsbury, Small Mammals event, looking at wildlife in Longden and Bridgnorth cemeteries. We have always had a great time and learnt a lot from these sessions.

Now you are being offered another session so “Join the Beautiful Burial Ground Project and Moths expert Charlie Bell in the Churchyard of St Bart’s part of the National Trust’s Benthall Hall near Much Wenlock”.

This event will take place on Tuesday 24th August 2021 from 10 am – 12 noon to learn to love Moths!

Overnight Charlie will set a harmless moth trap and in the morning will show us what has been found before they are released. 

Be prepared to discover the world of moths is more interesting and colourful than you first expected!

This session is free to attend but places do need to be booked, please book yours by contacting  George george@cfga.org.uk or info@shropshire-disability.net

This session is planned with accessibility in mind and will have seating and BSL interpretation available. 

Please let us know if you have any specific access needs that we need to know about in advance to accommodate. Also if you need help with transport, please let us know.
