‘Stepping Into Nature’ project officer to address the group’s next neeting at Woodmead Halls
The Heritage Coast U3A welcomes Julie Hammon, the ‘Stepping Into Nature’ Project Officer for the Dorset Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty to its meeting on Wednesday, August 9.
Julie will present an illustrated talk called ‘Why living in the Dorset AONB is good for you’.
The Dorset AONB, covering more than 40 per cent of the county, from Lyme Regis to Poole Harbour and from Blandford to Chesil Beach, is the fifth largest of the 46 AONBs in the UK.
The Dorset AONB Partnership brings together 20 organisations to care for the area and to keep this nationally important landscape in good shape for future generations to enjoy.
Julie will explain to the meeting what the AONB is, how the AONB team is working to get people out to enjoy it, and why this is important to everyone, now and into the future.
The talk is at 11am in Woodmead Halls, Lyme Regis DT7 3PG, with coffee or tea available from 10am.
Entrance is free to U3A members, non-members are encouraged to make a £2 donation towards the talk.
