North Camp Fair – 14 June 2014

The Trust and Partnership showed off their new branded gazebo and feather flags at North Camp’s day for the community, and a very successful day it was too for the Trust, recruiting nine new members including local MP Sir Gerald Howarth (that’ll teach him to wander onto stands like ours without at least a couple of minders). As well as Andrew Price there were new Trustee Peter Bolt, walk leader Clive Andrews and BVCT member Miranda Harrison, all of whom took to stand duty like the proverbial ducks to water. And talking of water, once again the pond-dipping proved once again to be the way to pull in the kids and give us the chance to ‘pounce’ on the parents!   For a small fair it turned out to be well worth the efforts of all concerned (and you could see a photo of the stand in all its glory if someone could just show me how to download it from my phone!)

About blackwatervalleycountryside

The Blackwater Valley is located on the borders of Hampshire, Surrey and Berkshire and runs for approximately 30km from the source near Aldershot, northwards to Swallowfield. At its confluence it joins the rivers Whitewater and Loddon. The Loddon eventually flows into the River Thames near Reading. Work in the Blackwater Valley is co-ordinated by the Blackwater Valley Countryside Partnership on behalf of the local authorities that border the Valley. Despite being surrounded by urban development the Valley provides an important green corridor for local residents As well as the Blackwater Valley Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and a small part of the Basingstoke Canal SSSI, three nature reserves within the Valley catchment and many other areas have been recognised for their ecological importance. The local planning authorities covering the Valley have designated 31 other areas as ‘Wildlife Sites’.
