The rain and thunder thankfully held off for our duck dash on Sunday. Thanks to everyone who turned up, bought a ticket, played the tombola and joined us for some quacking good fun. We raised over £300 for the Friends, every single penny of which goes back into our work within the forest. Lovely pictures courtesy of Colin Dadswell.
A few hardy volunteers got a bit sweaty for July’s work task in the Enchanted Wood, erecting a new fence to maintain the boundary of the Enchanted Wood (our brash fence was simply too tempting for den builders). August sees our annual fundraiser the Duck Dash. Sunday 5th August from 11am (tickets on sale from c10am). Hope you can come along!
We are thinking of again holding our very popular Duck Dash races in the stream near the Visitor Centre on the May Day Bank Holiday – Monday 4th May 2015 – to raise money and promote the Friends of Dalby.
However for the event to go ahead we would need to confirm sufficient volunteer numbers. Assistance is required both in and alongside the stream for the Duck Dash as well as in the Visitor Centre to sell tickets (or outside if the weather is good).
Would you please let us know by 10th March if you are available and willing to help on 4th May. We already have at least one willing volunteer for being in the water!
