Annual Reviews

Each year we now produce an 'Annual Review' for Friends and Members, which incorporates a summary of our formal Year-end Report, plus what we hope are some interesting highlights of the year in question.

The previous few Annual Reviews can be downloaded here:

2018 Annual Review

2017 Annual Review

2016 Annual Review

2015 Annual Review

2014 Annual Review

2013 Annual Review

Members and Friends are sent these annual reviews as soon as they are produced each summer, and have an opportunity to attend our AGM each October and raise any issues.

If you would like to become a Friend, you can read more on our Join Us page, and then complete the application form.








UPDATED Announcement re coronavirus (COVID-19)

The car park to Magog Down is now closed, with effect from Tuesday 24th March 2020. The site remains open for access by foot or bicycle (please park your bicycle sensibly and then walk around the site).

Police guidance is clear that people should not be travelling by car to take their exercise away from home during these unprecedented times. This is supported by the Kennel Club. We recommend that our many hundreds of regular visitors take this opportunity while the streets are so quiet to enjoy exploring your local area: greet your neighbours (at a safe distance!), look around you and admire the architecture, and observe what flora and fauna is emerging in your street.

Essential maintenance work at Magog Down continues, so the entrance must be left clear at all times. Thank you.

Old Newsletters

Up until 2011 we produced a twice-yearly Newsletter, and you can still download copies of some of these here:

pdf_logo_smallSpring/Summer 2011

pdf_logo_smallAutumn/Winter 2010

Spring 2010

Autumn/Winter 2009

Spring 2009

In 2011 the re-designed website was launched, and so the decision was taken to stop producing these Newsletters, and instead to use this website as the main means of communication for news and articles of interest.

This move away from a regular Newsletter meant that more of the Members' and Friends' subscriptions could be spent directly on the costs of upkeep and husbandry on the Down.

We would love every regular visitor to Magog Down to help support its upkeep by becoming a Friend. Read more on our Join Us page, and then complete the application form.
