Tony Piper who is very knowledgeable about butterflies and moths is concerned at the absence of butterflies and moths that have usually appeared during other summers.
He said that with just the odd periods of wet and dry weather , we have seen Red Admirals , Meadow Browns, large and small whites , One Green- Veined White was seen as well as only 1 Peacock and Bumble bees as well as Honey bees have had an extremely bad year so far.
We can only hope that we will not see the same decline as last year !
As East Guldford does,nt have its own Village Voice I want to let you know that there is a new cafe opened on the Salts Farm site.It is called Beryls Cafe and it is run by Jenka and Anthony , Interestingly , both of them are chefs , Jenka is Russian and cooks Russian dishes. They are providing really interesting cuisine with an International flavour using locally sourced produce.
They are going to hold themed events in the evenings providing food from different countries .Look out for the advertising , We wish them well in their new venture!
It was very nice to hear that Shaun Carter from Denham Way was one of 12 athletes chosen from the Hastings and Rother district that will be joining others from the South East Region competing in next summers Special Olympics to be held in Bath . Shaun has attended several events so far, this year and will continue training hard , into 2013 to prepare for them.
The event lasts 5 days with 3 days of competitions and an opening and closing ceremony.
Special Olympics Great Britain (SOGB) is the major provider of sporting opportunities for people with a learning disability and provides equality of opportunity for all of our athletes regardless of ability or degree of disability(. So Good luck Shaun.)
