You are invited to an evening talk with CFE and Marek Nowakowski, Wildlife Farming Company at Maplebeck Village Hall, NG22 0BS

Marek’s job involves researching into farmland wildlife habitat creation, drawing on scientific findings to influence policy.

A FREE pie and peas supper will follow the talk.
