As usual, following a short business meeting we will have a presentation by a guest speaker. This year's guest speaker is Lesley Davies, Director of Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust. Lesley will give a talk on the Trust’s work and its new 5 year plan for Stocker’s Lake.
Our 2016 AGM was held on Thursday April 7th. You can download the minutes from here. Our guest speaker was Paul Barritt, permanent guest leader of the Hallè Orchestra. He and his wife Jo (a wonderful cellist) are also the directors of Tring Chamber Music. Paul's marvellous talk, ‘Birds & Music’, was absorbingly interesting, totally original and at times very amusing. He illustrated it with recorded music and birdsong and by playing his violin. We loved it!
40 FoSL members attended our 2016 AGM. A further 38 non-members, including the leader of 3 Rivers District Council, joined us immediately afterwards for Paul's talk.
