Weather: Amazingly there was only one or two light showers, mainly on the Sunday, despite the five day forecast earlier in the week. There had been one night of frost early in the week.

Report: This four day event consisting of an exhibition display and twice daily led forays was a major new undertaking by the group to which nearly all members made a contribution in one way or another. The event was orchestrated and coordinated by Sue Rogerson and Alan Lucas who arranged the programme of helpers, foray leaders, advertising and liaison with the Forestry Commission. The event was held in the Forestry Commission's Reptile Centre which consisted of a wooden building to house the exhibition and nearby parking and public toilets. It is about 400yards off the main road in an area of mixed woodland which provided varied and interesting habitats to explore on the forays. Over the four days nearly 400 members of the public attended the Centre and coming as it did at the end of half term it provided a new venue for holidaying families to visit. The forays were led by Eric and Alan throughout the four days and they clearly enjoyed the experience finding it hard to drag themselves back to base at times! Around 150 species were found during the four days which were put out on the display tables in the Centre. Various posters and leaflets were available in the centre and members of the group were always available to enlighten people in the world of fungi. After the success of this first event there is undoubted enthusiasm to repeat the exibition next year.
