Local environmental charity, Ulster Wildlife, held its 2013 Annual General Meeting and associated member’s day at the Ulster Folk & Transport Museum, Ireland’s largest open air museum. Members of the charity were free to explore the beautiful parkland of the Folk Museum and enjoy guided nature walks through Discovery Farm, experiencing country living from 100 years ago.
 
The late 19th century Parochial Hall in Ballycultra Town was the setting for the evening’s AGM whilst the Picture House silent cinema screened Ulster Wildlife’s Living Sea’s film throughout the day. The Parochial Hall setup was boardroom style and tea/coffee/sandwiches & shortbread were served on arrival for 40 guests. A networking session took place once the AGM finished, followed by a seminar in the Lagan Room for council members.

Geoff Scott, Ulster Wildlife’s Marketing Manager said of the event, “We wanted to provide our members with a special treat and a visit to the museum and the charming surroundings of the Parochial Hall could not have been more perfect. Ulster Wildlife has enjoyed many visits to the Folk Museum and we’ve noticed on every visit the rich natural biodiversity value of the site which is one of the reasons why we chose this location to host a day for our members that could include guided nature walks.”
 
Ulster Folk & Transport Museum is located 7 miles east of Belfast, near Holywood, on the main Belfast to Bangor Road (A2), just 15 minutes outside Belfast City Centre.
