FoAM’s Winter 2016/17 Newsletter

We have been busy the past few weeks working on our community project to build a new bird hide on Neumann’s Flash.  Pod’s hide is in memory of local bird watcher Pete Antrobus, whose colleagues joined us for two days to help build it.

We were delighted that Leader of the Council, Cllr Sam Dixon, and Deputy Leader, Cllr Louise Gittins, were able to spend a morning volunteering with us.  During their visit they helped with preparing the path to the new hide.

Read about their visit and all our other news in  FoAM’s Newsletter Winter 2016/17.

The Council’s Leadership Team came to the Northwich Woodlands on 14th October to find out about the range of activities undertaken by volunteers.

You can read more about their visit in our Autumn 2016 Newsletter and also find details of FoAM’s Events planned for 2017.
