Bioblitz at Cradley Churchyard was held on 5th June 2023. The session was led by Tim Kaye, director of Cultivating Learning and Nature CIC, in partnership with Hidden Herefordshire and the Biological Records Centre.

The session was enjoyed by about a dozen adults and 13 pupils from Cradley School gardening club.

To those of you who expressed an interest in the BioBlitz – THE RESULTS, over 100 items!  Somewhat indigestible, so much has been logged by Tim, and very much a record to be re-checked in another 4 years?


Having a party? Why not hire the Cradley Village Sumo Wrestling Suits? Two adult and two child suits available. Special rates for residents! Contact Ian Bailey or Jan Dampney on 01886 880316.
