Hendreds Environment Group - Ponds!

On 30th June 7pm-8pm join us on Zoom for a chance to hear
all about what we can do to provide a pond space for
wildlife in our gardens.  Ponds are a really important
feature in our gardens and are hugely beneficial to many
different types of wildlife.  We will be joined by
Mark Bradfield from Wild Wantage. Mark looks after the
Letcombe Brook, a chalkstream running through the Wantage
area for his main job.  Prior to that he worked for BBOWT
looking after their community reserves and adding wildlife
ponds wherever possible!  He is keen to promote wildlife
gardening and more appropriate management of community
green space. 
There will also be a chance to ask any other wildlife
gardening questions you have and use the collective
knowledge from our community.  Plus hear about updates
from the Space for Wildlife project so far this year. 
Entry is free - Please book at
-  you will be sent the Zoom link before the event.

Springline Radio Players continue their
audio offering with a classic play,
The Importance of Being Earnest,
A Trivial Comedy for Serious People,
a play by Oscar Wilde.
First performed on 14 February 1895
at the St James's Theatre in London,
it is a farcical comedy in which the
protagonists maintain fictitious
personae to escape burdensome social
obligations. Working within the social
conventions of late Victorian London,
the play's major themes are the
triviality with which it treats
institutions as serious as marriage,
and the resulting satire of Vicorian
ways. Some contemporary reviews
praised the play's humour and the
culmination of Wilde's artistic career,
while others were cautious about its
lack of social messages. Its high
farce and witty dialogue have helped
make The Importance of Being Earnest
Wilde's most enduringly popular play.

Look out for our next production, a
comedy entitled "The Lost Lamp of Loratta"
by Karen McKivit - just think of
"Blithe Spirit" meets "Aladdin and his Lamp".
