Come to a wild weekend at Bradgers Hill

Bradgers Hill Wild Weekend

All things wild and wonderful will be celebrated at a special Bradgers Hill Wild Weekend from Friday to Sunday (July 17 - 19).

Activities include a talk on creatures of the night, a dawn chorus walk, a reptile roadshow and a hands-on workshop run by Luton Astronomical Society.

It’s intended as a continuation of the good work carried out by the now defunct John Dony Field Study Centre – and it’s happening thanks to a grant from Luton Borough Council’s Your Say, Your Way initiative.

The weekend is being co-ordinated by Paul Hammond who sees it as a key to help sustain the area and have it designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

He said: “We’re looking to bring the community together to celebrate all the good things Bradgers Hill brings to our neighbourhood – some stunning scenery, a rich source of wildlife and a pleasant place to walk our dogs.

“The John Dony Centre did a great job informing local people as well as supporting the environmental work of local schools.

“We’re starting small but thinking big and by pulling together a pool of volunteers we hope to restore some elements of the Field Centre that we miss so much.”

Naturalist Trevor Tween has updated the orginal Lynchet Walk leaflet which denotes terraces on the Hill dating back to Neolithic times.
