This academic year we have one last event: a barbeque picnic to Providence Plantation on Sunday 9th June. This will be a great event to celebrate the end of exams and say farewell to this academic year. We’ll be getting the X7 bus from Bristol Bus and Coach Station at 1.15pm but feel free to join us later if you want.
There’s no sign up for this trip, so just bring yourselves, some food (we’ll provide the BBQs and burgers) and enjoy the freedom!
On Sunday 30th September we will be having our first social event of the year – a picnic on the Downs. This will be a great chance for new and old members to get to know each other and the committee, as well as to ask any questions they have. We will also be making DIY birdfeeders.
We will meet at the Clifton Observatory at 1 pm, or if you are unsure where the that is, there will be someone outside Beacon House at 12:30 pm to walk up there with you (look for someone in a BUCG t-shirt). Bring your own lunch, but biscuits and other sweet treats and snacks will be provided. Click going on the Facebook event if you’re able to come! (Join Bristol University Conservation Group Facebook page to find the event.)
On Sunday 29th October we will be going on a nature walk with experts from the Bristol Naturalists Society.

We might even round off the day with a picnic; check out the Facebook event for updates.
Our first event of the conservation calendar will be a picnic at Ashton Court on Sunday 25th September. Join us for fun and food and feel free to bring your friends.

Join us by the Clifton Suspension Bridge on Sunday 27th September at 1pm where we will be meeting for a picnic at Ashton Court. As well as being a great opportunity to meet for a chat and get to know the group, you can fly frisbees in a fun-filled frolic and feast from a farrago of food. Fortunately the forecast is for fair weather but if it is in-fact forlorn we can fall-back to the nearby pub, The Mall.
Update: The sun was out for the final social of the academic year. Free from exams stress and fuelled by picnic food, fun was found running around the Downs after frisbees, balls and fellow conservationist (the latter two often hidden in dense thickets). The social extended into the early evening, in part due to Jimmy’s impressively dedicated and impossible to find hiding spot.
On Saturday 6th June will be having a picnic on the Downs to celebrate the end of exams and the beginning of the summer holiday. Feel free to bring any food, drinks and games. We are meeting at the water tower at 2pm and should be nearby if you want to join us later. You can find the event on Facebook here.
Fortunately the forecast is for some suitably sunny weather though we can go to the Kings Arms at the top of Whiteladies Road in case of rain.
Update: The picnic was a success with lovely weather and a great turnout. It was good to meet lots of new members and we hope to see you on future events.
After the success of the picnic last year we hope to follow it up again to mark the start of what is sure to be another excellent year of conservation. On Sunday 28th September at 1pm we will meet up by the Clifton Suspension Bridge then walk across to Ashton Court where we will have the picnic full of fun and food.
It is a good way to meet new people, chat and generally have a great time outdoors. Hopefully we get the sunny weather we did before though as a back-up plan we can always head to a nearby pub.
