Sue Alderman from the Hare Preservation trust will be talking about the seasonally appropriate creatures at Woodbridge Community Hall on March 15 at 7.30pm.

The talk has been organised by the Suffolk Wildlife Trust, Woodbridge Wildlife Group.

The group’s chairman Phil Smith said “The hare is a shy creature but at this time of year they are more visible – and it is always thrilling to see them racing across our Suffolk fields.

“It is going to be very interesting to find out more about them from our speaker Sue Alderman and this promises to be a fascinating evening.”

As well as the talk there will also be a raffle and light refreshments.

Admission for adults is £3 with entry free for under 16’s.

For more information about the evening telephone 01473 625630 or email

All are welcome.
