High in the peck­ing or­der

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - News -

THE vil­lage of God­mer­sham will find it­self in the na­tional spot­light at the launch of the RSPB’s Feed the Birds day.

An­dre Far­rar, the so­ci­ety’s me­dia re­la­tions man­ager, will be de­liv­er­ing the Friends of God­mer­sham Church lec­ture next week.

He will be high­light­ing the im­por­tance of Kent’s wildlife sites and ex­plain how or­di­nary gar­dens can at­tract a wide range of birds.

Mr Far­rar, who was born in God­mer­sham and still has a house in the vil­lage, is hop­ing to stim­u­late in­ter­est in the area, which could lead to God­mer­sham be­ing adopted as the RSPB’s Homes for Wildlife vil­lage.

If this goes ahead, God­mer­sham could fea­ture on tele­vi­sion na­ture pro­grammes in­clud­ing the BBC’s pop­u­lar Spring­watch.

Mr Far­rar said: “If we can make a dif­fer­ence in one gar­den, just imag­ine what a whole vil­lage can do.”

His il­lus­trated talk is tak­ing place at God­mer­sham Church on Fri­day, Oc­to­ber 24, at 7.30pm – the evening be­fore Feed the Birds day.

Tick­ets avail­able from Tim Ge­orge on 01227 730527 or Fiona Sun­ley 01227 731153.
