BNA’s NATURAL HISTORY DAY
& 107th ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING



The 2012 meeting was held at Nonsuch Park, Surrey. The weather was a touch unkind, particularly at the greeting ceremony outside Nonsuch Mansion. David Bellamy, Deputy Mayors of the Boroughs of Sutton and Epsom & Ewell together with early attendees lined up for photographs just in time for an incredible downpoor but BNA umbrellas came into their own and our guests were kept dry.


A terrific day followed with excellent attendance and enthusiasm from all concerned. Dr June Chatfield accompanied David Bellamy around Nonsuch Park as he shared his boyhood memories of exploring for wildlife in the area, he and June identified species in the Park and Tom Thomas took people on a Spider Safari.
