Sparrows are amongst many of the birds that we saw regularly in our gardens as children, but are now infrequent visitors. Their numbers have declined, which is sad.

John Allen is Leader of the RSPB Torbay, and he is coming to Lympstone to tell us what we, as gardeners, can do about this. His talk should be of interest to bird lovers and gardeners alike. The talk will take place on Wednesday 21st March at 7.30pm at the Function Room. Everyone is welcome.
