The November Newsletter is available on the web-site.  Please pass it on anyone who is interested in the Dales and all the flora and fauna which live there. (This time of year is particularly good for fungi.)

Heswall Dales Open Day 15th September - The Treasures of the Dales


On 15th September the Committee of the Friends of Heswall Dales with the help of the Ranger held an open day on Heswall Dales with the theme ‘Treasures of the Dales’.  Our aim was to attract more visitors to the Dales by helping people to appreciate the many interesting features of this local nature reserve, including its lovely views, and diverse flora and fauna.   Committee members and other volunteers were on hand to guide people around the site and point out the various natural treasures which are found there - we also produced a walkers map and a range of display boards with supporting information. Dale Farm provided light refreshments and access to their loos.  
Thanks to all those who joined us on the day - we've had some excellent feedback and will look to set up something in the spring next year - and thanks to the Ranger and to Dale Farm for their support.
