The adventures of a wildlife cameraman – a talk by Sean Morris

Monday 27th January, 8.00 pm, Melland Room, Blewbury Clubhouse

Sean was one of seven biologists from Oxford University who were united by the thrill of filming animals and plants in remote and exotic places for TV. They started a small company, Oxford Scientific Films (OSF), based in Bladon near Blenheim Palace. OSF soon became the world’s leading independent wildlife film company, and invented many of the specialist techniques now commonly used to create today’s blockbuster wildlife series.

Tickets £4, on sale in January at the Post Office. Doors open 7.30 pm; drinks will be available from the bar.

Seeing where heat is leaking out can help you make your home more comfortable, save you money and reduce your carbon footprint by showing what can be done to improve your insulation. Sustainable Blewbury volunteers have imaged and provided short reports about more than 220 homes in Blewbury since 2009.

Hedge laying

We have been working on the hedge along the east side of Tickers Folly Field. The work has already tidied up a fairly scruffy stretch of hedge and allowed more light into the community orchard. Some of the hedge is not suitable for laying but all the bits that are should be finished well before Christmas. The group will then plant some saplings, mostly hawthorn, along the rest of the hedge. We have been joined this year by new and enthusiastic members and will soon be moving on to lay a hedge along Pilgrims Way. If you would like to join in please contact John Ogden at
