An evening of flowers and music: you still have the opportunity to go along to Bardsey Village Hall tomorrow, Friday at 7.30pm to watch Judi Cripps demonstrate Spring Fever with flowers. Also Ollie Mulkeen will be performing a medley of Rat Pack, Buble and other songs. It promises to be a very entertaining evening for a cost of £10, which will include a glass of wine, nibbles and a raffle ticket for the flower arrangements. All proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity, a global re-homing charity.

Bluebell Wood, Hetchell: you may just have time to see the bluebells before they disappear for another year. If you haven’t seen them before then take the main route to Hetchell Nature Reserve, and bare off left into the wood and don’t forget your camera. They are about three week late, due to the cold weather, but well worth the wait. Enjoy!

East Keswick Wildlife Trust: James Ferguson, the living landscape officer for the Yorkshire Dales, will give a talk entitled The Yorkshire Dales Road Verge Project. He will explain this recent initiative in the Dales to return the verges to their former flowery glory. Meet on Wednesday at 8pm in the Methodist Church meeting room.
