Quotes

"We need to compete with the likes of Japan and South Korea."
"There’s nothing quite like sitting round a camp fire at night, surrounded by woodland. Put alongside that the prospect of scores of lanterns moving slowly through the darkness of the wood and it should add upup to an unforgettable experience. Everyone’s welcome to come along. It’s entirely free but numbers are limited so advance booking is required. To book a place just phone me on 07543 406 968 or tim@wilderthings.co.uk “ Members of the public can register for free for a lantern making session at 4pm on Sunday October 12, followed by the walk itself at 6pm, leaving from Nant Mill, Coedpoeth."
"As crews gained entry they were exposed to six dogs who would naturally protect their property and were scared. Firefighters dealt with the situation extremely well to knock down the fire and save so many animals."
Dr Becky Chaplin-Kramer, research associate at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment and the lead author of the study, said: "A disruption in pollination services certainly has a price-tag, estimates go as high as $390 billion annually, but the cost to our nutrition could be even greater."
