"The Wild Flowers of East Cheshire"
Mr Jack Swan gave an illustrated talk on many of the wildflowers that can be found in East Cheshire.
He began by explaining the importance of sites such as the "Coronation Meadow" at Dane-in-Shaw pasture Congelton, in sustaining the diversity of species and the importance of some of these plants as food sources for bees, butterflies and hoverflies.
The site has SSSI status and has been greatly improved by using Yellow Rattle and other hemi-parasites to weaken the grasses and to allow plants such as Common Spotted Orchid and Common Cat's-ear to flourish.
