***************************************************************************

7. 28 July: International Bog Day.
http://www.ipcc.ie/events/

Several of the events of Tarntastic involve trips to Malham Tarn Fen
and Moss – This bog complex is of International importance. (It is a
Ramsar Site and National Nature Reserve.)

In most of the bogs in England, the “lagg” – the gradation between bog
and ordinary soil has been removed. (for agriculture)  -but the fen
area that is left at Malham is impressive.

See insectivorous plants such as sundew, butterwort and bladderwort.

Pond dip in peat pools with pondskaters and ferocious dragonfly nymphs

Listen to meadow pippits and curlew.

Smell the Bay willow, Meadowsweet and Watermint

There are 33 types of Sphagnum (bogmoss) in the UK and 15 of them can
be found at Malham Tarn. (Bogmoss is the moss that grows in pools on
bogs that you may fall in if you are not careful. It was dried and
used as wound dresssing in the wars)

Settle Storytelling Festival returns between October 10th and 13th with
tales for everyone. Storytelling Laureate Taffy Thomas and festival
favourites Mara Menzies and Dave Tonge will be playing Hunt the Storyteller,
Dominic Kelly shares the spellbinding tale of the Devil’s Purse, and we’ll
be playing host to Sierra Leone’s Usifu Jalloh the Cowfoot Prince in an
unmissable family show.

The People’s Library: You might take a book out of the library if you want
to read a story – how about booking a person to hear their tale? We’re
looking for local people with interesting stories for the People’s Library –
and all that’s needed is a few hours of your time over the festival weekend.
Drop us a line at info@settlestories.org.uk to find out more.

Volunteer: Our committed team of volunteers make the festival happen – we
couldn’t do it without you. Get in touch if you’d like to get involved this
year.
Storytelling Competition: Can you tell us a ten minute story that makes us
laugh, makes us think, perhaps makes us cry? It could be about anything
under the sun, a true story or a fairy tale. Visit the website at
www.settlestories.org.uk/competition to find out more.
