About the event

Nick Marriner join us from the Chalk, Cherries and Chairs project. Nick has been instrumental in helping the Chiltern Cluster Group of farmers, much has been achieved already, and I’m sure Nick will give us an update. Alongside Nick will be the view from a working farmer, Will Lacey from Lane End. The Lacey’s  Family Farm have dairy cows and grow arable crops as well as running a successful farm shop. Will is heavily involved as a pilot farmer in this project and is tasked with giving feed back to government on how to balance the needs of wildlife and his responsibility as partner in a family farming business.

The talks will start at 7.45pm but doors will be open earlier with refreshments available so you can catch up with friends prior to the main event. For the new season admission will be £5 including drinks and a raffle ticket and we shall have a card reader at the door. Seating will be moderately spaced out. Please join us!
