The DMG Auction – how it works

We are looking forward to seeing you at the Mercure Rougemont on Thursday evening!John Walters Deer Painting

I hope you’ve had a good chance to check out our fabulous auction lots. We have been donated over 50 items, large and small, so there is something for everyone. From wildlife photography experiences, to guided walks, B&B stays, books and crafts there is so much to bid for. Remember – it’s all to raise money so that Devon Mammal Group can continue to help reserch and conserve mammals in Devon. We offer free training, hold talks and other events. The money raised in the auction is to help fund a further study of harvest mice inthe county.

How will the auction work?

We are holding the main auction, where many of our lots will go. You will be given a raffle ticket on entry which will be your number. You will need to refer to this number if you wish to bid on anything. Some of the lots will also go into a silent auction. You write your bids down for these items and the last one to bid wins. this is all annonymous (you use your lot number again). PLUS, some of our lots will go into the raffle, including crafts and artwork.

So, as well as the raffle ticket we give you on arrival, remember to buy more raffle ticket for your chance to win selcted lots!




The evening will also include a short talk from Pete Cooper, who is the Harvest Mouse Project Officer, on the work he has been doing over the last few months. Harvest mice are rarely seen. Only a handful of records had been recorded in the last few decades. We have been assessing their distribution across the county since last autumn. We have managed to vastly increase the number of records for this species in Devon. We have managed to cover a lot of the county. See the map.


Come along and join us for a fantastic evening, bring a friend and enjoy the auction on Thursday evening.
