This year, the AGM of the Friends will take place on Tuesday, November the 22nd in the Council Chamber in Beaconsfield Town Hall at 8:00 pm.

After a very short business part of the AGM, there will be a talk by John Tyler entitled 'Trees and People'

Events on our reserve are almost always organised by the Friends Group.


The Nature Reserve walks start from the Preschool/Scout building at the Holtspur Top Lane end of Cherry Tree Road. The walks are open to everyone, but if you are not a member of the Friends, we do ask for a voluntary donation of £1.
