Heath Week Sunday 26 - Friday 31 July 2015

I snapped a photo of this poster, one of many in the area publicising the 2015 East Devon Heath Week.

But what better way to advertise the event than with this t-shirt, worn by Fairlynch Museum’s own Nicky Hewitt.

Nicky is in charge of the archaeology and geology collections at the Museum in the Priscilla Carter Room, where you can also see displays of the local wildlife which makes our region so special.    

A geologist by training, Nicky works part-time as an administrator at the RSPB nature reserves on the Exe Estuary and at Aylesbeare. You can find out about them here
and here.

I regularly mention on this blog around this time of the year the East Devon Heath Week. It starts this Sunday 26 July from 11.00 am at Woodbury Castle, the Iron Age hill fort mid-way between Budleigh Salterton and the village of Woodbury.

The Heath Week is an annual series of events that aim to celebrate the fantastic landscape of Woodbury Common and its heaths. Each year it takes place at the end of July, a good time to see heathland and its wildlife at its best.
