Friends of the Ullswater Way (FOUW) have announced two new Understanding Ullswater Evening Talks that will take on Thursday 1st October and Friday 2nd October. Both had originally been scheduled to be presented to audiences in local village halls but have been re-scheduled to take place by ZOOM because of COVID 19 restrictions.
The first, at 19.30 on 1st October, will be given by Danny Teasdale, who has pioneered work on developing innovative farming systems in Matterdale and elsewhere. The title of his presentation is: Nature friendly farming. It will be hosted by FOUW. To register for the event individuals will have to write an email to [email protected] and a ZOOM invitation will be sent nearer the time.
The second, at 20.00 on 2nd October, will be given by Anne Clarke, Trustee of FOUW, who has played a key role in developing an innovative new website portal and Heritage Knowledge Bank for promoting education and awareness of Heritage in the Ullswater Valley.
The title of her presentation is: ‘Bringing Ullswater’s Heritage alive – a new community initiative.’ It will be hosted by Stainton Village Hall. To register for the event individuals will have to write an email to [email protected].
Tim Clarke, the Chair of the Friends of the Ullswater Way, said: “Both these talks will demonstrate a real vitality and passion for bringing new, innovative community-led initiatives to the fore. In these challenging times we hope they will breathe new life into the multiple ways in which communities can provide leadership in transforming the way in which our countryside is managed and understood.’’
