Heswall Dales Open Day - Spring in the Dales

The next open day in Heswall Dales is on Saturday 11th May. The Friends of Heswall Dales will be holding a 'Spring in the Dales' open day that day between 11am and 3pm. There will be interactive features incorporating walks, challenges and quizzes, to help everyone get even more out of a visit to the Dales. Maps and information will be available next to the Ranger's Cottage, off Oldfield Road so please come along - families and children very welcome. Dale Farm will also be holding their spring plant sale on the day, so there will be refreshments and toilet facilities available at the Farm. 

More dates for your diary

The Friends of Heswall Dales Annual General Meeting will be held at Heswall Hall on Wednesday 5th June starting at 19.30.  

We are thinking of a Midsummer's Eve walk through the Dales starting and ending at one of the local pubs and meeting at about 1930. Midsummers Day is formally on Monday 24th June in the UK, so the Eve is on a Sunday night, but one or two days either way probably won't make much difference (though the weather might). Let us know which day you would prefer.

Members task day

Thanks to all who made the Friends members task day on Saturday 2nd February such a success. We were working on the panel near Dale Farm which is now set aside for Friends task days and made a great start in clearing the birch and gorse - giving the heather and bilberry (and all the creatures that live in them) a much better chance for spring growth. Thanks especially to the Rangers (Dan and Alan) who gave up their Saturday morning to supervise the work.

Friends of Heswall Dales Facebook Page

The Friends of Heswall Dales Facebook page has been launched! It provides news and updates about the Dales, lets everyone know what the Friends are doing, and publicises any upcoming events. Follow the link above, or look for '@friendsofheswalldales' on Facebook.
This new page helps us to promote the Dales to a much wider audience and to show Heswall Dales as a great place to visit including content of visitor experiences, and interesting information about the plants, birds, animals and features of the Dales….like the Turtle’s Head.  

It is also a great forum where you can let us know your views, and  help to promote the Dales by sharing your photos and experiences – even if it just by 'checking in' to let people know you have visited.

If you are not on Facebook don't worry: we will still be sending out our newsletters via the website and by email – but it might be worth a look – and if you have ideas or thoughts on how we can improve the Facebook page, or how to reach a wider audience - please contact Alistair has recently joined the Friends committee and looks after our comms and publicity.
