Friends of Therfield Heath and Greens

The Friends of Therfield Heath and Greens had a stand at the Kite festival promoting our support and fund raising for the Heath.

Congratulations to Royston Rotary for organising such a successful day. It was lovely to see so many people enjoy being on the Heath. If you collected some seeded paper from the Friends stand let us know how you get on after planting it. Our new Chairperson, Hollie Christie, was on the Friends stand and was happy to meet plenty of visitors as well as the conservators who had the stand next door.

On 15th July the Friends Plein-Air Painting Group met at the Royston Allotments. It was such a good time of year, horticulturally speaking, and the artists had a rich variety of places to sit and sketch or paint. Our thanks to the allotments society, RAGA, for welcoming us onto your beautiful and well maintained site. Newcomers will always be welcomed at future events. The next one is on 21st September on Therfield Heath.
