We have again been awarded the Green Flag (Community) for 2019/2020.


This is the eighth year running that we have held this award.


Many thanks go to the volunteers, members and sponsors that were helping to maintain a rather special area for the wildlife in the local community.


We have received a £100 donation from The Whitley Bay and Tynemouth Soroptimists, which will be used to purchase spring bulbs and wild flower seeds to help improve the seed bank in the Wildlife Site.


The dene top is still in bloom with Yellow Rattle, Meadow Buttercups, Knapweed, Meadow Cranesbill,  Musk Mallow, Oxeye Daisy, a variety of grasses and other plants.


The judge from the R.H.S. will be visiting us on the 13th August, but we will not know the results until later in the year.


Although I have not been fit enough this year to carry out all the usual survey work, the reports I’ve had from our regular volunteers show that all the recorded butterflies and bumblebees that have been sighted this year in probably higher numbers than last year.
