As the new Chairman of Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust I very much look forward to meeting you at our AGM and Members’ Morning on Saturday 4th November.

As well as the AGM there will be:

  • Presentations from the Trust’s Chief Executive and Staff focusing on our work to engage and inspire the next generation and conserve our wildlife now and for the future.
  • A Question & Answer session which gives you the chance to respond to the presentations and allows us to hear from you in person.
  • Opportunities to meet other Trust members and supporters as well as staff and trustees.
  • Our shop which will be selling Trust Christmas cards, calendars and wildlife themed gifts.

The full agenda is shown below. I hope you are able to join us – it’s a fantastic way to find out more about the difference your membership and support makes to our local wildlife. It is also a great opportunity to meet some of our staff and learn about the vital work they are doing across our counties.

We hope to see you there.

David Jordan OBE, Chairman
