Subject: FW: BTCV Haringey newsletter Jan 12

Kick-start 2012 and burn off that festive blubber. BTCV will be sticking to its new year’s resolutions this year, so join us to meet nature with our action packed month of activities.


We have loads going on throughout January including planting a gigantic hedge, improving an organic garden and have also launched our new 2012 training programme (see attached flyer). BTCV Haringey is out and about doing practical conservation every Tuesday and Thursday.


No experience required and we welcome new volunteers. Get out there, meet new people and discover a new side of you. Have a look at our newsletter and come along to any activity that interests you; especially as they are all FREE.


Thank you and we hope to see you out and about in Haringey.
