A talk by Steve Marshall, Ecological consultant & river conservationist

Many of the UK’s rivers have been changed by humans to the detriment of nature through acts such as straightening, canalising, denuding them of vegetation and more. Steve will talk of his successes in restoring rivers in south-west London back to a more natural state and thereby benefitting nature including water voles, kingfishers, fish and more.

Monday 4th March 2024 – Saving the Stone Curlew

A talk by Keith Betton, author and broadcaster

In the Summer we usually have walks rather than talks.

Our talks are usually on the first Monday of each month from September to April at St Marks Church Hall for a 19.30 start.

The atmosphere at our talks is very informal with wine, soft drinks, tea and coffee available to buy from 19:00pm and everyone is welcome to come – both adults and children.

Our speakers are always happy to answer any questions the audience has – and there are usually very interesting discussions!
