The Southwold group held their annual meeting in mid April and were told that £2,000 had been raised locally in the past year for wildlife projects in the county. Ann Lawson, who is both chairman and treasurer, especially thanked the large number of volunteers within the group who help in so many ways to make meetings efficient and enjoyable and who save considerable expense by delivering over 300 of the trust magazines three times a year. Secretary Joy West reminded the audience of the varied and interesting talks enjoyed over the past year which had been so well supported, as well as several walks to look at wildlife in the locality. Following a vote of thanks for the work that the committee put in, the seven members were returned en bloc. After the formal business, Michael Strand, the trust's development officer, spoke on the Living Landscape Project, which will seek to buy land, or at least create wildlife corridors to link up existing reserves and other nature conservation sites and thus create much larger areas for animals and plants to colonize and so prevent extinction by isolation.
