AJ McCann wrote recently of the demise of Hinckley Natural History Society. I was wondering, following a conversation recently about the late Peter Gamble, what had happened to the Loughborough Nats. I note the link on these pages to the group's website is 'broken'.

Does anyone have any idea if the group is now dormant?

Hello Philip,

Loughborough Naturalists’ Club is still very active indeed.  We have had to move our meetings on-line – using the summer months to hold highly successful Zoom Member’s Evenings and we are now into our usual Winter Programme of monthly talks, also now by Zoom.  These are advertised on NatureSpot and are available for non-members to attend.  Follow the link and you will be sent details.  You would be very welcome.  We have recently recruited quite a few new members who are actively recording in their specialist fields, so hopefully we have a solid future.  The Newsletters are still published and distributed either on-line or by conventional post as also is the Club’s Journal, Heritage.  Like most clubs we are very much looking forward to meeting again in person, but we are most definitely still thriving under lockdown conditions.  We would certainly welcome new members!  I had not been aware of the broken link – thank you for bringing it to my attention.  I will look into getting it fixed as soon as possible. Meanwhile Googling Loughborough Naturalists' Club will find us – the website is still there.

Best wishes, Hazel Graves, Chairman Loughborough Naturalists’ Club

thank you for your reply, that's good news that you are running. The link is working now.

Hope to get  round to joining soon, and excited about the meeting on Swifts,
