We fund and support community activity to create stronger, happier communities


In 1889, Emily Williamson founded what is now the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds. She invited friends to a tea party at her home where they signed a pledge to 'wear no feathers' in their hats. Her home today is the centre piece of Fletcher Moss Park, Didsbury.

The RSPB now has 1.1 million members and over 170 reserves around the UK. In July and August I'll be visiting the eight that comprise the Eastern England region of the society.

I am cycling the 400 miles between the reserves. At the same time I am going to display the design for the Emily Williamson statue that will be located in the grounds of her former home.

So why not come and say hello?

I am raising money for the Emily Williamson Statue Campaign and the eight RSPB reserves I'll be visiting. The money will be split equally between the statue campaign and the reserves.

The itinerary is as follows. On each of the days I'll be at the reserve between 11.00 a.m. and midday before setting off to cycle to the next location.

Sunday, 23rd July - The Lodge, RSPB HQ Sandy

Monday, 24th July - RSPB Rye Meads, Herts

Tuesday, 25th July - RSPB South Essex

This reserve is situated in Wat Tyler Country Park

Friday, 28th July - RSPB Minsmere, Suffolk

Saturday, 29th July - RSPB Lakenheath Fen, Norfolk

Monday, 31st July - RSPB Strumpshaw Fen, Norfolk

Tuesday, 1st August - RSPB Titchwell Marsh, Norfolk

Wednesday, 2nd August - RSPB Frampton Marsh, Lincolnshire
