24: 15 and 29 March: Tove Hubbard of YWT writes:  The Yorkshire
Wildlife Trust is looking for volunteers to spend a couple of
hours walking a transect through some of our reserves recording
all the butterflies and day-flying moths. No experience is
necessary as we will be running training courses on 15th March
from 2pm – 5pm and 29th March from 11am – 2pm. The surveys are
carried out once a week between April and September and you
would be part of a rota for the reserve you are surveying.

We are looking for several volunteers at each of these sites:  Brae Pasture
Southerscales and Grass Wood.
(Also: further to the east:  Ripon Loop, Wheldrake Ings,
Littlebeck Wood, Burton Leonard, Ashberry, Staveley,
Bishop Monkton Railway Cutting, Barlow Common,
Yellands Meadow, Kiplingcotes Chalk Pit.)

Pioneer Projects: – A Reminder
http://www.pioneerprojects.org.uk/
I  called  in  at  St  John’s  Church Hall, Settle, and was really
impressed with the work of Pioneer Projects.  They have space for more
people – new members welcome.

If  you  know  someone  who would welcome attending sessions 10am-3pm
specially  designed  for  people  with memory loss or dementia, please
tell  them  about it. You might have a friend with dementia or have a
neighbour or a friend who is a carer for someone with dementia.

They    have  brilliant  art   activities  in  the  morning and a very
popular and successful music and movement session in the afternoon.
Home cooked food is served at lunchtime.

People  do  have to pay – but it it is worth it for the activities and
enjoyment involved.

A  lady  from  “Continued  Care”  is  here all day in case people have
personal needs.

If  you  do  not  wish  to receive these “Events around Settle” emails
