Foxglove 30th Anniversary Raffle

Wednesday, June 15th 2022

It is 30 years since a small conservation area was established behind Cambrai Lines, Catterick Garrison, with financial assistance and personnel from The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards. Since then, the reserve has grown and evolved into the well known Local Nature Reserve. To celebrate the 30th year of the conservation project there will be a special Bioblitz Day in August when Natural Historians and members of the public will try to identify as many different species of wildlife as possible. It is hoped to find 30 new species throughout 2022! On the day a raffle will be drawn and already there are many superb prizes that have been donated by local businesses. 

Prizes include a day at the races, a four-ball round of golf and £100 worth of M&S vouchers plus admission tickets to many local attractions such as the Black Sheep Brewery and the Forbidden Corner, meals out at local restaurants plus many more. 

Tickets cost £1 each and are already available to purchase from the Field Centre. Any help with selling of tickets would be much appreciated, please see a Reserve Manager if you are able to assist. Finally, a sincere thank you to all of the local businesses who have very kindly donated prizes (we have been overwhelmed by your generosity), to Ken & Linda for renewing the license and to Katie for organising prize donations and ticket production. Good luck everybody!
