Welcome to CNHS

We have a wide range of walks and talks planned for 2022 so please check out the events page.


We are constantly reviewing our indoor meetings as we try to ensure people's safety during periods of high levels of Covid. Our next indoor meetings will not be until September 2022 and we will update you on the choice of venue, including the possibility of some online ZOOM events, but during the summer we have a wide range of outdoor walks and surveys. We'd love to see you at one of these.
