Ann Bonnett from GTC said: “We are delighted to be announcing our Passing Through and Settling Community Project which will have long-term and permanent results including a new Girton walking trail, with benches and rubbing plaques, which will be inaugurated as part of the opening of our new building. ‘One Minute Bird Watching’ was chosen from a list of suggestions for the launch event as it can encompass all ages and doesn’t require any previous bird watching knowledge. It will also encourage participants to be more aware of the birdlife that passes through and settles in the various village locations.”
