Wildlife in Peterborough
The Huntingdonshire Local Group of the Wildlife Trust is pleased to present an illustrated talk entitled ‘Wildlife in
Peterborough’ on Wednesday 12th November at 7.30pm at Brampton Memorial Hall, Thrapston Road, Brampton,
PE28 4TB.
Our speaker, Sarah Lambert, is a freelance botanist who has lived in Peterborough for thirty years and has an inti-
mate knowledge of its wildlife resource. Through her work with the Wildlife Trust, Froglife, Peterborough Environ-
ment Conservation Trust and Natural England, Sarah has first hand experience of many of the local wildlife initia-
tives, including the establishment of local nature reserves. Sarah’s work has ranged from botanical surveying and
site assessment, to reconciling nature conservation with flood defence, agricultural and recreational interests, to
the production of policy guidance for Natural Capital and brownfield sites.

Have you ever thought about researching your family history?
At the Cambridgeshire Family History Society Fair on 25 October, we can help!
With the eleventh series of Who Do You Think You Are? airing on our screens
this summer, family history has never been more popular.
Expert advice will be on hand at the Cambridgeshire Family History Society Fair
on 25 October. Speakers will teach you how to find your Cambridgeshire ances-
tors and then show you how you can turn your research into an interesting story
for your family and friends. In this very special 100th anniversary year since the start of the First World War and
70th year since D-Day, you will also hear about the Imperial War Museum Duxford's collection of Second World
War images as well as learning how to date old photographs from looking at clues given in pictures.
Exhibitors from family and local history societies will be attending, as well as organisations offering everything that
you need to help you with your research. Whether your ancestors are from Cambridgeshire, or beyond, experi-
enced Family History Society volunteers will be available for one-to-one sessions to give advice about getting
started and what to do if you get stuck. There will also be free access to the main genealogy providers' websites
throughout the day. Share ideas and practical tips with your fellow family historians and, for a small charge, there
will be soup and a roll for lunch while you chat!
The fair is taking place at Girton Glebe School, Girton. Doors open 10am-4pm.
Parking and entry is free (£2 to attend each talk). The Citi 6 bus stops outside the
