The Egrets Way Annual General Meeting
on Monday 10th June 2019 at 7pm.
At St John Sub Castro, Lewes
A project loved by most if not all of Cycle Seahaven, The Egrets Way now has planning approval in place for the whole riverside route. The majority of final landowner agreements are in place and their next step is to get the substantial funding required to complete construction. Why don’t we show support at their AGM?
Followed by an illustrated talk about the fantastic female founders of the RSPB by Tessa Boase, author of Mrs Pankhurst’s Purple Feather.
“In 1903, an ounce of egret feathers could fetch $32: twice as much as an ounce of gold. To the RSPB, this was a watershed moment.”
The true story of how the snowy egret was pushed to near extinction by the raging Victorian and Edwardian fashion for feathered hats – and how a small group of women fought back to save this, and other species, from ‘murderous millinery’.
An uplifting tale of women and birds. More details on our new website.
