    We look forward to welcoming you to our AGM

    Doors open at 7:00 pm and you can view displays from local groups and meet the Trust management team prior to the start of the meeting at 7:30 pm.

    Our speaker

    Our guest speaker will be Anne Brummer, winner of the Animal Hero Awards 2018.

    Anne runs the Harper Asprey Wildlife Rescue Centre in Surrey, which cared for more than 1,600 creatures in 2017. She also runs the Save Me Trust with Dr. Brian May, which exists to give wild animals a voice.

    Anne leads vocal campaigns on wildlife issues from driven grouse shooting and the ivory trade to circus animals, removing orcas and dolphins from captivity, and wearing fur. She is especially passionate about opposing fox hunting and fighting against badger culling.

    Anne will talk about the Amazing Grace campaign, which is trying to save our native hedgehogs.

    BVCT’s third Big Valley Ramble will take you through some of the most delightful scenery that Berkshire has to offer - the quintessentially English country lanes and paths that link Arborfield and Swallowfield. Spring’s wildlife and landscape will be in all its glory.

    The ramble is 11 miles long and will go through Farley Hill, along stretches of the Blackwater and Broadwater rivers, then skirt Swallowfield and Arborfield villages before returning to Aborfield Cross.

    BVCT's reputation for scenic and well organised walks means that everything, including light refreshments, is completely taken care of.
