Local News and Events from Judith for Settle and Area

Here’s a short list ready for the New Year.
All the best with making your New Year’s resolutions to get fit,
learn to identify more wild plants, improve speaking skills, have fun, help
others etc… or whatever you choose.

If you have seen any wild flowers IN FLOWER around Settle over the last few
days do let me know – I am planning two New Year Plant Hunt walks on 1st and
