LCW – BBC WILDLIFE MAGAZINE January 2019
During the summer, Llangattock Community Woodlands was invited to provide BBC Wildlife Magazine with some information for an article. A specialist photographer came out to visit them for a morning and took lots of pictures and LCW submitted some words about their group. Sue Wingrove did them proud with this article in the January 2019 edition. We hope you enjoy reading it.
ENERGY LOCAL CRICKHOWELL CLUB – FIRST MEETING HELD
It was great to see so many people at the information evening held at The Bear in Crickhowell on Tuesday 25 September. Those present had already registered their interest in the Energy Local Crickhowell Club and were there to hear more from the different parties involved. As promised here is the link to the presentation along with notes from the question and answer session. Thank you all for coming along and we hope you will continue to support this exciting initiative!
If you have not registered your interest but would like to do so, please visit the Crickhowell segment of the portal www.energylocal.org.uk and enter your details by 22 Sept so that we can check that you are in the supply area and send you particulars of the meeting. We look forward to seeing you there.

Hydro Volunteers needed please!
Now that we have 5 micro hydro schemes up and running we’d like to get a few more volunteers involved in monitoring them for us, especially now that we’re heading into the (hopefully) rainy season. It’ll take around an hour or so of your time once every 6-9 weeks. If you feel you can help or would like to know more, please feel free to get in touch with us by email to Simon Walter: firstname.lastname@example.org
