Wildlife, water and Queen Victoria

As spring enjoys full bloom in Aylesbury, the Dissenters’ Chapel in Tring Road Cemetery (pictured) is gearing up to host some informative talks for residents.

On Saturday 11 May from 10.30am, wildlife enthusiast John Tyler will present ‘Making Space for Wildlife.’ In a world where natural habitats are rapidly disappearing, John will offer practical insights on transforming even the smallest garden into a thriving sanctuary for wildlife.

On Wednesday 22 May at 6.30pm, the River Thame Conservation Trust hosts a talk with project officer Chels Hothem. Chels will be sharing tips on how people can help to protect water quality in everyday life and focusing on the Stoke Brook and Bearbrook, which run through Aylesbury.

On Saturday 6 July there will be a unique opportunity to ‘Meet Queen Victoria.’ This gives people the chance to delve into the intriguing funeral and mourning beliefs of the Victorian era as ‘Queen Victoria’ herself shares tales from the past. An accompanying display of historical artifacts will also be on display. It starts at 10.30am.

All events are free to attend, but due to limited space, pre-booking is required. Secure a spot by emailing info@aylesburytowncouncil.gov.uk
