Our AGM was held at Leighton Moss on 22nd March 2019 at 7pm

 

Robin Horner, Area Manager RSPB gave a fascinating talk entitled

‘Working for Wildlife in and around the AONB - an RSPB perspective'

This was followed by the AGM. The Chairman's statement and financial report are on the reports page.
 

 


Arnside/Silverdale AONB Landscape Trust

 

The Arnside/Silverdale AONB Landscape Trust have launched their fundraising campaign. They need £100,000.

This is to pay for their new reserve at Coldwell and enable them to manage the reserves sustainably in the coming years. The total raised to date is just over £29,500.  There is some way to go. Can you help?   

Full information on the appeal and how to give is at  www.landscapetrust.org.uk

 


Solar PV Project update

 

The solar PV initiative is continuing. Storth School, our first solar school in 2012 continue to be very pleased with their panels. They have generated over 20,000kwh. They sent us the letter below explaining why they are so pleased with them.

 


The solar panels from the Leeds Childrens Holiday Centre were donated to the Lakeland Trust for Natural Sciences who run Wildlife Oasis on the A6.


The Solar panels at the AONB offices are working well and have generated over 10,000kwh since they were installed in 2015,


Last summer Silverdale Primary School discovered that all their roofs were leaking badly( not just the ones with panels on). The panels had to be removed and put into storage and the roofs patched temporarily. Hopefully the roof problem will be resolved soon and Silverdale will be generating again.
