UK Swift Week

Two dates for your diary:

Swift Awareness week 16th – 23rd June.



16th – 23rd June 2018


Saturday 16th June – Come and visit our stall between 10am and 4pm on Moot Green to find out why Swifts need our help. We will have information on Swifts, nest boxes on show and copies of our ‘Swift Walk’ leaflet and of our children’s book Storm available.

In the evening join us for a ‘Swift Walk’ around town when we will be pointing out some of the nest boxes residents and businesses have installed and hopefully we will get an aerial display too.  This starts at the Moot Hall at 7pm (finishes at the White Hart, which may be home to one of our Swift families again this year)

Sunday 17th June – our stall will be at Snape Maltings from 2pm onwards

Saturday 23rd June – our stall returns to Moot Green (10 – 4) and we will be hosting our Swift Walk again at 7pm.

If you are a visitor to Aldeburgh and would like to see if there is an event taking place where you live, go to the Action for Swifts website where there is a link showing all the planned events.


And on Thursday 5th July the Suffolk Wildlife Trust will be hosting a fascinating talk about Swifts to be given by Edward Jackson of Save our Suffolk Swifts at the Church Hall next to the Parish Church (IP15 5DU).  The talk starts at 7pm and there will be light refreshments available. This is a free event and there is ample car parking at the hall.
