Pimms and Poetry

Now that summer is here (for a while at least), thoughts gravitate towards treats like strawberries and Pimms (well mine do, anyway). So it is a great pleasure to announce the Pimms and Poetry Evening at Welney Wildfowl and Wetland Trust Centre on Wednesday, 20th June 2012.

This is a rare opportunity to enjoy listening, glass of Pimms in hand, to four local poets reading their work against the beautiful backdrop of the Ouse Washes. The poets in question are J.S.Watts, Janet Fairweather, Leanne Moden and Elaine Ewart.

The event, which starts at 5.30pm with J.S.Watts, is free, but admission to the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust Centre is not. Through this event, the trust hopes to raise funds for nocturnal survey equipment.
