The delights of Wildwood Discovery Park were savoured by an excited group of CPRE Kent members, supporters and friends on an exclusive tour of this very special place. Julie Davies, a member of the CPRE Kent planning team, led a party of 14 on Saturday, June 8, as they learnt about the conservation of water voles, harvest mice and dormice before meeting rescued red foxes as they were fed by their keeper. The afternoon allowed the group to wander around the park as they chose, getting to see fantastic animals such as bears, wolves and badgers. And some, we can be assured, took full advantage of the opportunity to eat at the wonderful café! Our next event is Christmas dinner at The George in Molash on Friday, November 29.

Travel on the intriguing underground postal railway
Always keen on a good day out, we’re organising a trip for CPRE Kent members (and their friends) to London this summer.
First stop is the Charles Dickens Museum in Holborn, followed by lunch at the superb Lady Ottoline pub in swish Bloomsbury (worth a trip in itself, many will say).
After that, we will be visiting the fascinating Postal Museum, a highlight of which is a journey on the old underground postal railway.
All this, including return coach travel between London and Kent (with pick-ups at Charing and Wrotham), for just £60 per person.
There are only a few places remaining on this fantastic trip – running on Friday, June 1 – so if you fancy joining like-minded people and having a lot of fun, phone the office on 01233 714540.
