A message from the Chairman of the Friends of Holtspur Bank Local Nature Reserve (LNR)
Dear Friends of Holtspur Bank LNR
I’m writing to ask for your help and support for our future activities.
The Friends have achieved a lot since Shirley Scrivener formed it almost 25 years ago. Working with Beaconsfield Town Council, the owner of the Reserve, the Friends have maintained and enhanced Holtspur Bank Local Nature Reserve so that it has become one of Beaconsfield’s natural jewels. The Friends have gone from strength to strength thanks to its hard working, effective and talented Committee members and working party volunteers. All the activities of the Friends are driven by the Committee as our regular Newsletters show with a love of this rare and delightful part of Beaconsfield’s natural environment being implicit in all that we do. In addition, we promote the Reserve to a wider audience through our regular guided walks to ensure we maintain viable levels of membership and that we are financially stable.
Committee members move on, move away or retire and we need your help. There are plenty more things we could do but we need more Committee members. Without them it will be difficult to maintain our impressive list of activities or to initiate new ones. We are in particular need of a Newsletter editor and someone to handle Promotion/publicity. You would not necessarily need to join the winter practical conservation work parties although we could use some help here too.
If you were to join us, you could expect to be well supported by other members of the Committee. Even if you cannot make time to join the committee, please remember that we are always seeking “active” members who are prepared to help at specific events.
Remember, volunteering also has a positive impact on your own life. You’ll meet new people living near you, you can take a refreshing break from your everyday routine, share a skill and make a difference in your community
