We are delighted to have been chosen to benefit from Rodborough Open Gardens and Sculpture Trail on Sunday 7th June .You will have the opportunity to explore beautiful, ordinary and inspiring gardens in and around Church Place, Rodborough. View sculptures by local artists, and visit the Stroud Valleys Project book stall. Enjoy tea, cake, and ice cream. Tickets are available in advance from Stroud Valleys Project eco shop.

The Festival of Nature is coming up and will take place for two weeks at the end of June. Our wildlife and nature organisations have got together to organise lots of events and activities that are really exciting. Two highlights for me are a talk from Matthew Oates from the National Trust entitled ‘For the love of butterflies’. The talk will include readings from Matthew’s new book; ‘In Pursuit of Butterflies, a 50 Year Affair’. The other highlight is a talk about otters from the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust’s ‘otter man’.

There is another chance to see the ‘Lives Light and Biodiversity’ exhibition by Paul and Helen Green at Stroud Brewery on Friday 12th and Saturday 13th June as part of the Festival of nature. This is an exhibition of photographs featuring our work, people, and the amazing places we have on our doorstep.

Don’t forget our Bike Ride which is on Sunday 14th June, starting from the Museum in the Park. Everyone who raises sponsorship for us or makes a donation will be entered into a free prize draw. Prizes are a £30 gift voucher for a Friday night meal at William’s Kitchen in Nailsworth, a meal for two at the Star Anise noodle night and some fine wines from Raffles Fine Wines in Nailsworth.
