The Lakes Open Day was a great success. Thanks to Ann Lyons for sending these photos to give a taste of the day. Below are comments received from both Ann Lyons and Christine Peacock.
“I took my 12 year old grandson down and we had a really good time. He had bee keeping described to him, with a glass container showing the bees busy at work, there was honey to taste as well
Former Parish and District Cllr Rick Atkinson was rowing people round the Lakes and also had some crayfish for all to see.
The Lakes Committee were out in force all pulling their weight and I think enjoying showing “their Lakes” to everyone. The weather was mostly kind.
Many of us go for walks round the Lakes but it made such a difference to have so much information provided. I think as a village we possibly take it for granted that the Lakes will be accessible and safe, I think we should take our hats off to all the volunteers who make this possible.” Ann Lyons
“Despite a cool September day the Lakes Open Day was a great success. It was extremely well organised….from a welcome coffee stop greeting at the beginning, to being able to go out on a boat to view the lakes from a different perspective at the end. The craft making of bees and linked stall showing bees and how to make honey coupled with pond dipping, and RSPB stall made a walk around the lakes a perfect family occasion. The talks on the ice house and garden of Adderbury House were very informative. Thank you to all who were involved with the organisation of this event. We are lucky to have such a great local nature reserve and an active group of committed volunteers to help maintain and preserve the lakes for years to come.” Christine Peacock.
