A PROGRAMME of wildlife and conservation events in Yate and Chipping Sodbury has been drawn up for the coming months.
Avon Wildlife Trust will benefit from teams of eggheads testing their general knowledge in a quiz in the Old Grammar School, Chipping Sodbury, on Friday, March 13.

Tea and coffee will be served but those taking part can also take along their own drinks and snacks.
Entry is £2.50 per team and places can be booked by phoning 01454 310328.
The event will be followed the next day, Saturday, March 14, with a workday at Wapley Bushes nature reserve. Meet at the Shire Way entrance in south Yate at 10am.
A spring clean has been planned for the Goose Green area on Saturday, April 11, with path clearance and tidying up of the grassland and wetland nature reserve on the list of work to be carried out.
Volunteers, who should wear walking or Wellington boots and gloves, are asked to meet at the bridge west of Oak Close, north Yate, at 10am.
A guided spring walk to coincide with the bluebell season is also scheduled for Sunday, April 19. Walkers should meet at the clock tower in Chipping Sodbury’s High Street at 2pm, when car sharing to the venue will be organised.
More events have been planned for later in the year, with details of walks, pruning sessions and further work days to be announced nearer the time.
