Saturday 3rd September, and the sun decided to shine on Bucknell show after a stormy morning. Society members, Karen Limbrick, Anthony Morgan and Martin Garland worked together to show off the society’s new display materials. A great deal of interest was shown and it turned out that a fair number of local people knew little or even nothing about Brineddin Wood and its quillets, with a few promises made to visit in the not too distant future and even help with work parties (yes, please to that!). Karen again engaged children’s’ interest with practical activities. About seven children made bug hotels, ladybird tidy tins or ‘God’s eyes’, but bug hotels were a particular favourite.
