The Leicestershire and Rutland Badger Group Summer meeting

'A walk around Abbey Park, Leicester to see badger setts and other wildlife'. Parking charges on Sundays are £1 for up to 3 hours and £3 for up to 6 hours. There are other car parks on Abbey Park Road on the North edge of the park. We can eat at The Peppercorns Cafe in the park run by LOROS. It is a pleasant place for a snack, but it may be busy, so it is wise to order food in advance. We will have a reserved table and Peter Mynott will bring a menu to our meeting point to collect orders. Please let Sue Allison (sueallison230@gmail.com) who is organising the walk know if you are able to come and if you would like to have lunch in the cafe. Meet at 10:15 in the St. Margaret's Pastures car park for a 10.30 start. Access to this is from St Margarets Way just North of the canal bridge.

Date: Sunday, 10th August, 10:15AM
