A public meeting of Halstead Conservation Group will take place at the United Reformed Church, in Kings Road, Halstead, at 7.30pm on Thursday.

The meeting will be chaired by Councillor David Hume, Mayor of Halstead.

Admission is free.

An illustrated talk Birds on the Move will be given by Peter Dwyer. Peter is a local ornithologist and licensed bird-ringer. His talk will explain migration patterns and will include some of the birds that we see in Halstead. Novice bird-watchers and experienced birders alike will learn from this presentation.

After the talk there will be refreshments and a raffle.

The Annual General Meeting of the Group will then take place at 9.30pm when everyone will be welcome to attend, but only Members of Halstead Conservation Group may vote.
