On Sunday 9th June Paul Sartori Hospice at Home staff, Volunteers, voting members and supporters were invited to take part in a flower meadow, farm ecology walk and picnic in Camrose, Haverfordwest.
Everyone learnt so much about conservation and beekeeping whilst taking part in the very informative walk. They also learnt how the bees are looked after and the honey is made. Everyone had the chance to look at the variety of moths and received a talk about all the different species in Pembrokeshire. John Walmsley, was the moth catcher the night before. Plus there was star guest appearances of a Monotomidae beetle and grass snake.
Sandra Dade, Charity Manager said “Thanks to everyone who joined us, it was a perfectly sunny, warm day which highlighted Pembrokeshire’s beautiful Countryside.”
Roger Burns, took everyone around his wildflower meadow; to show them how he is developing local honey and working towards protecting the ecosystem. Then Roger Mathias, took them around his farm to show the lengths the family are going to, to conserve the Pembrokeshire ecosystem. Roger Burns kindly gave participants a jar of honey to take home.
“We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed the walk in Camrose and how informative it was. It was heartening to see farmland being managed that way, to see the incredible variety of moths that were present; which we don’t normally see at all, and to picnic in the meadow in such glorious sunshine, then go home with honey!” Said Diana Webb, a Bereavement Counsellor at Paul Sartori Hospice At Home
