Please note the revised start time of 11:00am for this meeting only
Past-member Duncan Wright returns to LymNats to lead a Lichen Discovery walk at St. John’s Church, Boldre on Thursday 9th December. We meet at the large car park accessed via a gravel drive off Church Lane just past the church as you approach from Boldre. Please do not park directly outside the church.

The walk will focus on the lichen found on tombstones and the surrounding trees. A 10x magnification hand lens would be a valuable, and relatively inexpensive piece of equipment to bring along to this walk to fully appreciate these miniature marvels. Duncan Wright, has secured some hand lenses from the British Lichen Society at a very good price on a sale-or-return basis and will bring them to the meeting. Should you wish to purchase one, please bring the exact cash with you. Simple unlit hand lenses are £2.50 each and LED illuminated ones are £5.00
The church itself is well worth a visit and Richard Smith will bring some walk maps if anyone wishes to prolong their visit with a pleasant self-guided stroll afterwards.
We look forward to seeing you there.
