Successful History and Honey Walk on 11 September

 Ten of us started from Abbotswood, exploring Dodington Parish Council's new Memorial Garden at QE2 Kelston Close Playing Fields. We discovered traces of the old Sergeant's Farm and heard about the impact of the coming of the railway.

We crossed over to Wapley Common and explored the Orchard for the Future, learning about pollinators, inspected the bug hotels, and discovered how grassland management for small mammals has attracted tawny owls to nest in the woodland.

On the way back to Abbotswood Paul Hulbert told us stories behind the names of the various roads on our housing estates.
