October Barn Dance

Members and friends enjoyed a lively evening dancing to Rogues Gallery under the direction of caller Tony Kelly.

One of the dances included a tour of the car park!

To cap it all the evening also raised £233 towards the Association funds - so many thanks to all who attended, made donations, bought raffle tickets, contributed to the pud etc.


Summer Picnic

Bunting and beautiful weather greeted visitors to the Fox Corner Summer Picnic and the barbecues were kept very busy.


May Walk

The Bird Song Walk was held on Saturday 27th May.

Twenty members and residents of Fox Corner joined our guide, John Arnott, at 8 am for a walk through the wildlife area. Starting at the car parking area we first encountered a Whitethroat who entertained us with an aerial display. Those with binoculars were then able to identify a further 8 birds whilst listening to their songs and calls. John had been able to identify 21 birds in all when he walked the area prior to our arrival but for those new to listening to individual bird song, 9 was an excellent starting point.
