REPTILE PICS: Local people are being asked to share their photographs of local reptiles as part of a survey by the Dearne Valley Landscape Partnership. The partnership’s aim is to build up a picture of the numbers of lizards, worms and snakes found in our woodlands, verges, waterways, hedges and shrubland. All the information will help ensure these creatures are protected. Contact 01226 787540, [email protected]


DEARNE VALLEY LIFESAVING CLUB: The club is organising a fundraising swim of 125 miles to mark the 125th anniversary of the Royal Life Saving Society. The event at Manvers Lake on June 18 is also being organised to mark Drowning Prevention Week. Anyone taking part will be given the option to paddle around the lake rather than swim. People can turn up on the day and do as many or as few laps as they wish as all swims/paddles will contribute to the final total. Some members of the Manvers Waterfront Boat Club are taking part and any monies raised by them will be split between the Dearne Valley Lifesaving Club and the Waterfront Boat Club to help purchase new equipment. The event is planned to run 9am-4pm. Contact 01709 878984, 01709 878984, http://www.mwbc.org.uk/
