Posted on by royvickery |

Three walks coming up:

Saturday 2 September:  Herbal Heritage, uses and folklore of local plants, West Norwood, London Borough of Lambeth, 3.00 p.m., a contribution to the Lambeth Local History Fair.

Report:  A good mixture of about 20 people turned up to spend c.75 minutes discussing the uses and folklore of common plants in the corner of the Cemetery nearest its main entrance.  Most of them apparently enjoyed the walk, and several contributed useful information to the discussion.

Sunday 3 September, 12.30 pm.:  Tree Walk, Brompton Cemetery, London Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, a contribution to the Friends of Brompton Cemetery Open Day.

Sunday 3 September, 3.30 p.m.:  Herbal Heritage: Folklore & Uses of Cemetery Plants, a second contribution to the FoBC Open Day.

Report:  c.20 people attended the first walk, and c.18 the second (three or four came to both), both audiences were well engaged, asked questions and generally contributed.

‘Your walk was incredibly popular with our visitors.’
