Anniversary Book

FOWW – Silver Anniversary Book
We have started work on the book that will commemorate our 25th anniversary in 2021.
It will be a celebration of the wildlife and history of the beautiful Weir Wood site.
The contents will range from: the geography & history of the site; water – fish and water birds; edges – vegetation and shorebirds; trees and woodland – fungi, insects, lichen, birds; Whillet’s – meadows, ponds and reedbeds; the history of the Friends and our role in the conservation of the reserve.
Our aim is to complete the writing by the spring of 2020 and to publish early in 2021.
We are very keen to gather any suggestions, memories, photos and contributions that you may have. We are looking for pictures, maps and anecdotes. Don’t worry that you are not a writer. We will be pleased to meet with you and capture your thoughts with minimal effort on your part.
Please contact Tom Howard-Jones (membership@weirwood.me.uk): if you have anything that might be of interest; if you know someone else who might be able to help or if you would like to be involved.
We are particularly hoping someone may have photos or memories from the 1950s of the developing reservoir which we could possibly use in the book.
