What's On


Celebratory Springwatch Walk in Hemel Hempstead, Sunday 15 May, at 10am

Two years ago the Friends inspirational supporter in Hemel Hempstead, Roger Green, died following a short illness. The walking route we will be using today was trialled with Roger, and planned for May 2020, but Roger's death a month before the walk and Covid led to it being cancelled. So may wildlife be enjoyed and Roger remembered by those who knew him 

Meet by the bridge over the Gade in the Gadebridge Lane car park. Wear stout footwear, and appropriate clothing. This is a nature based walk, and is about 3 miles in length. Anticipate being back at the start point in less than 3 hours

This event will be limited to 12 persons, so book early to avoid disappointment

Contact Roger (yes, another one!) on to book, or if further information required. 

Annual Butterfy Walk, Sunday 24 July 2022 at 10am

We will meet at 5 Ways on the Nickey Line, at the point where the track from Townsend Nursery meets the Nickey Line. The walk will take us down as far as the bottom end of Knott Wood and back, pasing some locations raditionally good for butterflies (as a result of our volunteers help in creating habitat areas). The walk is about 1 1/2 miles in all 

Wear stout foowear and appropriate clothing. Should good binoculars should you have them, 

This walk is limited to 14 persons, so contact Roger on to book a place


Why not come along to one of our working parties and help with the management of the Nickey Line?

If you are interested, contact us with your details and we shall email you with future work parties
