These meetings are always an opportunity to network and exchange news about what is happening locally for biodiversity.
This particular meeting was the annual general meeting and included reports and the election of some trustees.
We heard from Trevor Mayne about his work for Barnsley Council as biodiversity officer and about the work on local wildlife sites and records. There were further updates on the biodiversity in schools project and the hogwatch (hedgehog) project. And updates on the Dearne Valley Landscape Partnership and the new partnership between Barnsley council and Yorkshire Wildlife Trust to manage some of Barnsley council’s green spaces.
