Annual Reviews

Each year we now produce an 'Annual Review' for Friends and Members, which incorporates a summary of our formal Year-end Report, plus what we hope are some interesting highlights of the year in question.

Village Cafe supports Magog Down

On the afternoon of Sunday 17th April we were pleased to attend and take part in a Stapleford Village Cafe event at the Jubilee Pavilion. 

The Stapleford Environment Group (a focus group of the Parish Council) and the Stapleford Bird Club had got together to organise a talk about Pigeons and Magpies - a subject that has created much discussion in the village of late!  Do the Magpies reduce the number of smaller birds in our gardens?  How can one control their numbers?

There were also tips on how to prevent your domestic cat from taking too many small birds in the garden.villagecafe_180

As usual at these events, copious amounts of delicious cake were on offer thanks to the wonderful volunteers involved.

Our thanks to the Bird Club leaders for suggesting that proceeds be donated to the Magog Trust. We were very pleased to receive the amount of £85 after costs.

Old Newsletters

Up until 2011 we produced a twice-yearly Newsletter, and you can still download copies of some of these here:

In 2011 the re-designed website was launched, and so the decision was taken to stop producing these Newsletters, and instead to use this website as the main means of communication for news and articles of interest.

This move away from a regular Newsletter meant that more of the Members' and Friends' subscriptions could be spent directly on the costs of upkeep and husbandry on the Down.

We would love every regular visitor to Magog Down to help support its upkeep by becoming a Friend. Read more on our Join Us page, and then complete the application form.
