Tame Valley Information

I am having intermittent broadband issues at the moment so this site is being updated less often than I would like, so bear with me! Also some people have sent me emails that haven't got through, so if any of your news is missing can you resend it to me or leave a comment on this post.

Also Steve Cawthray informs me the Ladywalk Work Parties are starting again from this (and every) Wednesday at 5pm onwards. Give him a shout if you are interested in helping out. There are exciting plans for the reserve.
