Mike Ridge, a former stalwart of the Somerset Moth Group and Butterfly Conservation, is unfortunately in poor health and in care and has had to give up his natural history activities.
He has donated much of his equipment to the SMG for sale, and has also asked us to sell some items on his behalf. They will all be available now to SMG members - contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org - and then remaining items will be available at the AGM on 11th November, and in the afternoon to BC branch members at the Branch AGM.Items for sale on behalf of Mike Ridge- these are real bargains!
