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.

Members and Friends are sent these annual reviews as soon as they are produced each summer, and have an opportunity to attend our AGM each October and raise any issues.

Covid-19 and visiting Magog Down - 12 May 2020

After reviewing the Risk Assessment, taking into consideration the Government Guidance of 11th May and making necessary arrangements, the Trustees are pleased to announce that the car park will re-open on Wednesday 13th May.

Also, after an absence of more than five months since its theft, the car park ticket machine is now back in operation, and there is a £3.00 parking charge for those who are not displaying an up to date "I'm a Friend" car sticker. This is still by necessity a coins-only machine; we are working on a cashless solution with renewed urgency.

Visitors are reminded to maintain social distancing with people not in your household, at 2m (about 6ft) apart throughout a visit to Magog Down.  Please keep dogs under control at all times, especially near other visitors, and on leads where requested.  Necessary precautions to prevent viral contamination should be taken when opening and closing gates, and using benches.

Enjoy your visit to Magog Down and do wash your hands on returning home.

Old Newsletters

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

pdf_logo_smallSpring/Summer 2011

pdf_logo_smallAutumn/Winter 2010

Spring 2010

Autumn/Winter 2009

Spring 2009

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.
