'CONSERVATION IN ACTION' - next Swanage Area Senior Forum meeting 23rd May
Swanage Senior Forum is privileged to have HEATHER BELL as our guest speaker on Wednesday 23rd May. She will give a fascinating presentation showing clips from her DVDs of two local projects covering the 2005/6 Swanage Beach makeover plus the exciting story of the Durlston Castle Restoration Project which takes us on a journey showing how it was brought back to its former glory.
You may remember some of the grumblings against the idea of trying to improve our bit of coastline, and you only have to look and see what these improvements have meant for all of us today.
Durlston Country Park, National Nature Reserve and Castle, is a jewel in the Jurassic crown of our area and age or infirmity should no longer be a barrier for any of us with the exciting new improvements that have been made to give easier access for all. Durlston is a fabulous 280 acre countryside paradise, including down land, hay meadows, fascinating wildlife and flowers. It boasts stunning views, accessible walking trails and the newly renovated Durlston Castle, where there is always something different to see and do. Or you can simply sit and have a cup of tea inside or outside on the terrace and admire the view.
Come and hear and see Heather Bell and find out how it all came to pass – and be enthused to take advantage of the wonderful area in which we live.
