3 Counties News: Summer and Autumn 2015

During this season we will be covering the usual foray sites that regular members are already familiar with, plus some new ones, most notably the Somerset WT Quants Reserve near Wellington. We also have a joint foray organised with the Somerset FCT Group at Alfreds Tower.

We urgently need to recruit nore members. We are going to offer a trial per foray charge for those who want to get an idea of what we do. £3.00 single. £5.00 family. Please try to persuade any friends, acquaintances, people you meet at Safeway, or neighbours to support us.

The major innovation in 2014 is the new mobile recording app that syncs directly with the main CATE2 database. It can be installed, free, on any android (Google) or iOS (Apple) tablet or phone, and is brilliant in use. The CATE2 datase now has well in excess of 1 million fungus records. The 3 Counties Group made a big contribution in 2013.

Last year was an up-and-down season. Late September and early October were disappointing, but later the season perked up. We had an excellent foray at Bewley Down on 22nd October at which we were delighted to welcome colleagues from SERC and some visitors. Thanks to all of you who have given your support recently.
