New News!



LERC Wales App enables you to get involved with biological recording. Contribute your species sightings with GPS acquired coordinates, descriptions and other information, thus providing scientists with important new biodiversity information that contributes to nature conservation, planning, research and education.

Your data will be kept secure and will be regularly backed up. Automatic checks will be applied to your observations to help spot potential errors, and experts can review your sightings. All wildlife sightings for non-sensitive species are shared with other users and will be made available to National Recording Schemes, Local Environmental Record Centres and Vice County Recorders (VCRs).

• Fully bilingual user interface (sadly not the species dictionary)
• Works fully offline
• Record all the wildlife you see - supports all UK species
• Add new records with minimal effort
• Benefit from automatic data checks and review by experts
• Share your sightings with the recording community
• Contribute to science and conservation
• Support the Welsh LERC community

Discounts 2020 for Club Members

January 2020


Dear Members

I am pleased to be able to tell you that in 2020 members of Drefach Felindre Gardening Club will continue to receive discounts from Farmyard Nurseries and Trefhedyn Garden Centre.

Richard Bramley at Farmyard Nurseries says that “discount will be given when a current membership card is presented. Don't forget regular updates and special offers on Facebook.  Please visit our website at:

The following is the agreement with Trefhedyn Garden Centre and is an extract from correspondence the Club has had with them:

“……we can only offer a 10% discount on Outdoor Plants, Shrubs & Trees.  The discount will not apply to Composts & Soils, Pots, Tools, Fertiliser & all other gardening goods.  We are still operating our Reward Card Scheme & members can still collect points across the store.”

Membership cards will be issued on payment of 2020 subscriptions and a current card must be presented in order to obtain any discounts.

With Best Wishes for 2020
