FOBH are pleased to announce that we are able to re-start our programme of events. Three events for 2021 are now available for booking at What’s On. We look forward to meeting up again soon with our members!
Our 2021 AGM was held via Zoom, and was extremely well attended by about 50 Friends as well as several NT staff. All the Agenda motions were voted on and passed unanimously by Zoom poll, including the re-election of the current committee for the coming year.
NT staff gave their views of the very tough events of the past year, having to cope with thousands of extra visitors whilst going through a redundancy and restructuring exercise. Hopefully, once all the posts in the revised organisation are filled then the coming year will see a return to a more normal running of Box Hill, a renewed focus on conservation and visitor enjoyment, and a less stressful time for NT staff.
The minutes of the AGM are available here.
We’re starting a Twitter feed for 2021 to help keep everyone up to date with what’s going on at Box Hill and with wider news of relevant conservation issues. See the feed on the right hand side of our website or follow us on Twitter @BoxHillSurrey.
Here is the Autumn 2020 newsletter from the Friends of Box Hill. As usual, this was circulated to all members earlier in the year so if you want to get your copy in a timely manner please join us. Here’s wishing all members and everyone else a Happy New Year.
As we come out of Summer and into Autumn (if not Winter!) and the cattle return to their conservation work, here is FOBH Summer Newsletter. Members will have received their copy of this at the start of Summer so if you want to receive your personal copy in a timely manner please join up now…
The FOBH newsletter for Spring 2020 has been sent to all members and is now available on the website under Useful Documents. Not surprisingly in these unusual times there is not a lot to report, but there is a summary of how NT are managing Box Hill during the lockdown.
Many of you can’t visit Box Hill but if you live close you may be able to see Box Hill in the distance and if you would like to take a photo of your view of Box Hill during the lock down please email it to us and we will publish it either on the website or through Instagram.
Some of our members have also been lucky enough to be able to take their daily exercise on Box Hill and have sent in their photos which we will also publish from time to time, including this lovely one of bluebells sent by NT’s Roger Grunsell.
