OCI This Saturday

That’s right, this Saturday is the day that we’ve all been planning for the ages.  OCI day has arrived at last.  We’ve drawn up a full list of prices and activities now and have started planning those important things like parking and signage!

If you are coming on Saturday, we look forward to seeing you there!

If you’re not coming you can count on me to inform you of what you missed!


Price Standard:    £10
Couple             £15
Family             £20

Maps can be printed from Google Maps (or similar sites) when navigating to “BA3 3NQ”.  Car-parks will be clearly signposted from the school entrance (I’m told we’re using red prayer flags so you can’t miss it!)



Subscription is back!

Some of you may remember the newsletter subscription that was in place for a brief period a few months ago.  It was a good idea of mine – especially when I had a large amount of free time to write about what we were doing.  But as the GCSEs arrived I confess to neglecting our little newsletter…

It was during our little wsbeorchids-team meeting that we realised that there was no need to write a newsletter – we update the website and people can get updates from there…

Yep, you guessed it, you can now get E-Mail Updates from WSBEOrchids.  Now there’s no need to pay our humble site a visit every few days, simply sign into your e-mail and get our updates along with all those other newsletters!

Sikkim photos at last

It’s been long awaited – and very frustrating for me because it wouldn’t work – but now we have a fool proof way of displaying photos as Slide shows!

Thanks to Google we should now be able to have photos from all of the expeditions, shows and other events from the past uploaded to the ‘photos’ section of our Media Libraries.  Watch this space

On TV!!

We appeared on BBC1 at 7:30 today.  Zoe Barnes talked about conservation and our Gangtok Schools project (yes to anyone who noticed the family connection!)  If you missed it, the video is online, right here, right now.  Simply click here or visit the media library.

A personal record for me as it has only taken 1 and a quarter hours to extract the recording and upload it!
