The Kerne Bridge Dark Skies Project is a community-led initiative aimed at reducing light pollution in the area and promoting the appreciation of the night sky. The project was started by Yolande Watson, a local resident who was concerned about the impact of artificial lighting on the local environment and wildlife.

If you’re interested in learning more about the project, you’re in luck. Yolande Watson will be speaking at the Wye Valley Society Annual General Meeting on Monday, February 27, at 7.30pm at Walford Village Hall. Watson will be discussing why she started the project, the work that volunteers have been doing, and what’s next for the initiative.

The meeting is open to the public, and anyone interested in the environment, sustainability, or the night sky is encouraged to attend. The Wye Valley Society is a community organization that aims to promote the conservation, protection, and enhancement of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

The Kerne Bridge Dark Skies Project is one of the many projects the society is supporting, and they’re excited to have Yolande Watson speak at their AGM. The society hopes that her talk will help raise awareness about light pollution and inspire others to take action to preserve the night sky.

If you’re interested in getting involved or want to learn more about the project, don’t miss Yolande Watson’s talk at the Wye Valley Society AGM.
