In addition we attend a variety of events to provide information on wildlife to the public, to sell RSPB and other nature-related goods and to fundraise for the Society.

Kaitlyn  and Ros Fraser – ‘Pilea to the People’ brings the elusive Pilea Peperomioides, or ‘Chinese money plant’, to anyone who fancies one, but just can’t find any. As seen in the glasshouse at Oxford’s Botanic Garden and the shop at Kew Gardens, pilea are curiously formed and delightfully fast-growing, a source of joy for green fingers and small fingers alike. We will have a range of our little plants available as well as assorted crafts!  




Sandra Hutton – Sandra has been selling goods for close on 20 years and will have a range of Ulster Weaver and handmade tea cosies, oven gloves, gauntlets, pot mitts and Irish linen and cotton tea towels available over the weekend.
