Due to unseen circumstances, the meeting point for this field trip has been changed from the one advertised on our website (up until 07/06/17) and in the Kent Branch Spring/Summer 2017 newsletter.

Please now meet at the main car park further along Thornden Wood Road at TR143632, on the west side of the road.

The details have now also been updated on our website events page (as of 07/06/17)

We are sorry for any inconvenience caused.

David Gardner steps down as Chairman and a "Thank You"

After many years, David Gardner stepped down as Chairman of the Kent Branch at our AGM & Members Day on Saturday 20th May 2017.

On behalf of the branch and committee, I would like to thank David for all his help, the time he has put into running moth events and the branch, sharing with many of our members his knowledge, and for all the work and time he put into helping our reserve in Shoreham (White Hill Reserve). With his leadership and energy the branch has thrived and will continue to do so.

David, I hope your plans are fulfilled.  You leave the branch and committee with so many happy and fun memories and I hope you will continue to help with the cause of our moths and butterflies.  Please accept our thanks and best wishes for the future.

Ben Kirby - 22/05/17
