Hi All,
This is rather short notice, but we have some spare places on a free wildlife event taking place this Wednesday. If you might be interested, please read on. Feel free to pass on to anyone else who may also want to take part.
If you’re interested but can’t make this date, there are more sessions to be planned so please email
gleadees-followingfred@yahoo.co.uk to register your interest.

Wednesday 11th September, 10am – 3pm.
Meet at Ocean Road Community Centre (bring a packed lunch, a digital camera or phone that takes pictures and dress for the weather).

Join local expert naturalist Keith Bowey to explore local wildlife, take pictures and identify what you’ve found. The main aim of the Wildlife Activity day is to provide an enjoyable guided walk and a learning opportunity that will raise awareness of the importance of local wildlife spaces.
In the morning, we will be doing an urban 'wildlife safari', during which participants will take some digital images of wildlife. In the afternoon we will be in Centre’s ICT suite learning how to use the OU’s iSpot website.
No previous experience is required.
Please email Keith at gleadees-followingfred@yahoo.co.uk for more information or to let him know you’re going to attend.

This session is part of the ‘Following Fred Project:
Thanks to support from the National Lottery through the Heritage Lottery Fund, The Customs House Arts Centre, South Shields, will be working with a range of organisations, into early 2014, to deliver Following Fred: a Life Inspired - Wildlife, People and Beyond. The project celebrates the life and work of Fred Grey (1912-1997) and his transformative abilities as a natural historian; as well as the work of some of the people he influenced.
Between summer 2013 and early 2014, the project will be:
• Creating an exhibition about Fred Grey’s life and work, which will be staged at The Customs House in early 2014
• Organising wildlife walks and a suite of Wildlife Activity Days in South Tyneside
• Running a South Tyneside Wildlife Photography Competition
All activities are inspired by Fred Grey’s ability to translate the wonder of wildlife to people.
