The Competition is now closed, but blog readers can still send me articles/essays/comments on the subject below if they wish.
31st July, 2015. The Entries have been read and carefully thought about by members of Halifax Scientific Society Council.
While all of them were considered excellent, and it was hard to choose, most votes went to . . . . . Entry No. 2 written by Linda Kingsnorth, Mammal Recorder for HSS.
With many thanks to all who took part. Charlotte Weightman, also of HSS and Philip Marshall of Todmorden, a member of the Upper Calder Wildlife Network were the other two.
All three gave us much food for thought. Linda’s is also a challenge to us to spring into action.
Do you have any thoughts on the way the Natural Environment is being looked after by the Authorities in Calderdale?
If so, why not enter this competition? It’s free to enter and the prize is a field guide of your choice up to the value of £16.99. Entrants must be registered members of
HSS, UCWN, CBWG or CBCG, i.e the Calderdale Groups concerned with wildlife conservation.
Deadline for entries was mid-day tomorrow, 21st June, but as I have been busy, I have extended it to mid-day on Thursday 25th June. It can be short or long, but please refrain from any libelous or inflammatory statements. (Over long pieces might turn off the judges.) Please email them to me at email@example.com.
It’s not so much for the prize, but to encourage people to set down their thoughts and feelings about Wildlife and the Natural Environment in Calderdale. You can have your say about any part of Calderdale, not just Council owned land.
Entries will be read and the winner decided by the Hx.Sci.Soc. Council members. (NOT Calderdale Council Staff.) Prize allocated by end of July 2015.
This competition is prompted by the 10 -page document which dropped in to some of our inboxes on 21st April from Calderdale Council’s Business and Economy Department outlining many new proposals for Cromwell Bottom Nature Reserve.
Please see below three entries already received.
ENTRY No.1 (Name supplied which will be added after judging.)
Entry No.2 (Name supplied which will be added after judging.)
