This training session will provide an
introduction to the Tree Health Survey,
and some of the main pests and diseases
threatening trees in Britain. The session
will enable participants to monitor tree
health to help form an early warning
system for our nation’s trees and to train
others how to do so if they wish.
What the training will cover:
• Introduction to UK forests and tree health
• Pests and diseases – information and identification of key pests and
diseases affecting oak, ash and horse chestnut
• The OPAL Survey: its purpose and what we are trying to find out
• How to conduct the OPAL survey, including practical training
To book a place please contact Rachel Pateman
rachel.pateman@york.ac.uk 01904 324403
Places will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. Due to limited
availability we will initially offer places to one representative from each
group who can then pass on their training to others.

Come and see us:
“A DOUBLE DOSE OF LIPPY LOGIC”
www.grassington-festival.org.uk/events/a-double-dose-of-lippy-logic/

Home Grown Talent produces unique show
You can find up to date information at   http://lippylogic.blogspot.co.uk.
Two women from the Settle area decided to take matters into their own
hands when they couldn’t find any good comedy and drama for ladies of
a certain age to perform. Christine Hooley and Veronica Caperon have
written their own show “A Double Dose of Lippy Logic” which they will
present at the Grassington Festival Fringe in June.

When not treading the boards, Christine runs the local village shop
and Veronica is a professional photographer and copywriter. They draw
inspiration from everyday life: “There’s a comedy sketch about our
exploits as novice vegetable growers during last year’s wettest ever
summer. The audience can expect to come face to face with slugs and
other gastropods with that one!” says Christine. The trials and
tribulations of caring for ageing parents and young children are also
tackled in a couple of scenes.
The show is on Wednesday 26th June at 8pm at The Methodist Church in
Grassington as part of the Fringe programme. Tickets (£6) are
available from the Festival Box office tel: 01756 752691
(www.grassington-festival.org.uk), or Crossleigh Stores in Austwick
015242 51415. Up to date information can be found at the pair’s blog –
