|FINDING RARE SPECIES IN THE MALVERNS
Lucy Grove, project officer for a new wildlife project in the Suckley Hills, invites you to a first event to introduce this project, which aims to help find, record and map the wonderful array of rare wildlife inhabiting the Suckley Hills area. The project hopes to train local people to identify and survey a whole range of wildlife.|
A free pint or soft drink and some buffet-style deli food is on offer.
Although the date to RSVP for this event has passed, it may still be possible to take part by contacting Lucy on 01905 759759 or email@example.com

|WOMBLING AROUND SUCKLEY
Be a Suckley Parish Womble and help to improve the look of our beautiful countryside parish.|

For health and safety reasons, litter pickers need to work in pairs, so please volunteer with a friend or family member.
Meet for a short briefing at the Unity Brewery and collect litter picking equipment.
Return the rubbish to the Brewery at 1pm, then enjoy a well-deserved beer and casserole (with vegetarian option available).

Another new venture for Suckley Village Hall. We are offering Easter related handcrafts including making an Easter card, face painting and an Easter egg hunt. The hunt will be in an enclosed garden if fine, or indoors if the weather is unsuitable. Drinks and snacks will be provided.|
Parents are welcome to join us and will be invited to enjoy a cuppa and some cake whilst their youngsters are busy.
Cost £2.50 per child excluding face painting, or £3.50 with face painting.

|COFFEE MORNING AND PLANT SALE
Please join us for a drink, homemade cake and a chat, where the Village Hall will be a good place to catch up on what is happening in and around Suckley. You can even put the world to rights with your neighbours!|
We shall also be running a plant sale. It was a great success last year, and people were able to buy
flower and vegetable plants at reasonable prices. It was also a good way of 'recycling' excess plants. We always grow too many seedlings, don’t we? We are more than happy to take them off your hands along with any plants that you have divided. Just bring them along on the day – we shall be very grateful.
