George is an ecologist, educationalist and researcher. Concerned by the dramatic decline in wild bee populations, he has focussed on researching the nesting behaviour of wild bees, in gardens and in the wider countryside. He will talk about how and why we should attract wild solitary bees into our gardens, and explain about their ecology, nests and pests.
‘Doors’ open 2.15pm, talk starts 2.30.

In light of the current health situation and after careful consideration, we have decided to cancel the meeting next Tuesday 17th. It wasn’t an easy decision and we’re sorry for any inconvenience. We know that Robin Smith is a popular speaker and that many people will be disappointed. We’re hoping we can say it’s postponed rather than cancelled, and that we’ll be able to arrange another date for his talk.
The March meeting of Wye Valley Women will be held on Tuesday 17th March at 7:30pm in the Village Hall (doors open at 7:15).
The speaker is award winning wildlife cameraman Robin Smith, who will be showing pictures from a film he made about birds of paradise. For a taster see Robin’s website – robinsmith.tv
Wye Valley Women is a community group set up at the beginning of 2018 after The Narth WI closed. Its aim is to provide regular opportunities for social interaction between members, and frequently their guests.
Members are invited to meet once a month on the third Tuesday. Meetings are usually in The Narth Village Hall where activities include speakers, quizzes and demonstrations.
Other regular activities currently include Walk and Talk on the first Tuesday of each month; a series of seasonal workshops called Something Different, where members are given hints and tips on how to create seasonal floral displays; organised trips (e.g. to The Royal Mint); and a monthly chat, art and craft afternoon. Members and their guests are invited to a bi-monthly lunch at a local pub or restaurant.
An annual Garden Party is held for members and their guests in the summer, whilst at Christmas there is a festive decoration workshop, a Christmas Lunch and a members’ prize draw.
A small group of volunteers (the Steering Group) organises the programme of activities and manages the finances. Volunteers are always welcome to help run the activities and to suggest speakers or other activities.
