In 2018 the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust approached members for donations to enable them to give a copy of Lost Words to every school in Lincolnshire, North Lincolnshire and North East Lincolnshire. The book by author Robert Macfarlane and artist Jackie Morris was designed to reacquaint children with words associated with the natural world which were falling out of use. Words such as acorn, fern, weasel or wren. Some children today are growing up with very little contact with nature and so are not acquiring the language to speak about it. The money was raised, and members were then asked to help deliver the books to schools in their areas. This was a delightful task and the books were well received. The artist Jackie Morris has recently been awarded the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal for her illustrations. They reflect her imaginative and sympathetic response to the poetry in the spells woven in words by Robert Macfarlane. It is a well-deserved honour.
We are offering the chance for people to understand the potential of the camera that they own? We are starting a free course for persons who would like to find the full use of their DSLR camera. We do not want camera experts. The courses will not be full of photographic jargon, just how to get the best results from the camera that you own. If you do not have a camera we will have some for your use.
The courses will be held at three venues.
Centre 4 Wootton Road Grimsby,
Tesco community room Cleethorpes,
Community Centre Woulds building Ladysmith Road Grimsby.
We are LWT members and we love our photography, the course will be run by us and we plan to display your work at the end of the course. Places are limited so pleas contact me 01472 310645 mobile 07940506724. John Stockton and Lucy Male.
