Planning for pollinators walk

When: Sunday 10th March

Where: Meet on High Green, Great Ayton at 2pm.

Join Martin Allen, an expert local botanist, on a free walk along the High Street in Great Ayton to help plan how we can make the village more attractive for people and pollinators.

The walk and talk along the High Street to Low Green will last about an hour with an optional extension along Guisborough Road to Camp Corner and back down Newton Road.

Winners of Hunt for Herbs competition

Congratulations to the winners of our Hunt for Herbs photo competition: Jane Ellis, Margaret Grant and Peter Morgan.

The prize for the ‘Best Station Adopters Herb Box’ was won by Nunthorpe Station Adopters whose herbs were individually marked and looked fresh and vibrant. It was such a close call that it was decided to award two ‘Highly Commended’ to both Egton and Kildale Adopters.

The Esk Valley Railway Development Company would like to thank all those who maintain the Herb Boxes to such high standards and they hope you continue to enjoy sampling the different herbs.
