January Talk

Nearly 40 members of the Society enjoyed a very interesting talk on Wednesday 20th January, given by Dr Goronwy Wynne.

Goronwy is a botanist and formerly the official botanical recorder for Flintshire and the author of the book ‘Flora of Flintshire’ (Amazon link).

The talk was entitled ‘Twenty Years on My Knees” referring to the time he spent, sometimes with others, scouring 150 designated areas covering all of the old county of Flintshire. He noted every plant, including trees and bushes he could find and visited each area twice in the year – spring, summer and autumn.

His book is a very nice coffee table book those interested in flora.

The Society would like to thank Goronwy again for his time, and we look forward to welcoming him back again soon.
