Over 30 people attended the AGM at which Inge Ridley-Jones was warmly thanked for having successfully concluded negotiations with the Woodland Trust which will enable us to continue working in Park Wood. She stood down from the Committee at the conclusion of the meeting, and we welcomed our new Chairman, Pete Hodges, whose first duty will be to sign the Third Party Agreement on our behalf and arrange further meetings with the WT Site Manager.

Work Days

October Work Day

After a long Summer during which all activity in Park Wood was suspended (apart from the regular litter picking and bin emptying) we have at last been able to hold a Work Day in Park Wood.  Thank you to all those who turned up to help on Sunday 25th, despite the unsettled weather.  With a few extra rules to enable safe working and complying with the Woodland Trust's advice about social distancing, we were all glad to have the opportunity to meet up again and see what jobs could be done.

Hopefully we will be back again at the end of November to continue coppicing and begin clearing the ditches.
