REG’s programme of meetings and events continues this autumn with a talk on Beachwatch; a joint meeting with Bexhill Environmental Group (BEG) exploring diets that are good for the planet; and our AGM. Additionally, there is an opportunity to try electric mountain biking off-road with Rother Rides.
Tuesday 24th September – Beachwatch – CANCELLED
Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances, this event has been cancelled and will hopefully be rescheduled soon. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Andy Dinsdale will be giving us the latest updates on the Beachwatch programme. Andy’s talks in the past have been very well received and have lead to lively discussions afterwards. Also watch out for other Beachwatch events in September when you can get hands on with the flotsom and jetsom on our local beaches.
Saturday 5th October – Electric Mountain Biking
An opportunity to try a guided electric mountain bike ride (mainly off-road) called Rother Rider Saturday. The ride takes between 2 and 3 hours and the price of £29 includes a guide, hire of bike and helmet if required. It is organised by RotherRides https://www.rotherrides.co.uk. Meet at Rother Rides, Rye Road, Newenden TN18 5PN at 9:40 for a 10:00 start.
You need to be able to ride a bike to participate but you don’t need to be an expert. The event is open to members of REG and 1066 Cycle Club. There is a cafe on site for a drink or lunch afterwards to discuss the highlights of the ride. It is sure to be a fun relaxed event for people to try an electric bike and see the local countryside from another prospective.
Wednesday 30th October – What’s a good diet for people and the planet?
A talk by Geof Rayner formerly of the Centre for Food Policy, followed by a panel discussion with Geof, Dan Ford (OneYou East Sussex), Abby Nicol (Farmer – Pea Pod Veg Organic Market Garden) and Dominic Manning (REG Chair and volunteer at Rye Community Food and Wildlife Garden).
This will be in Bexhill at the Beulah Church Hall, Clifford Road TN40 1AQ 19:15 to 21:00.
Find out what to eat in a changing world.
For those travelling from Rye we will be organising car share nearer the time.
