Our group is now made up of 153 households many of which have more than two members. While we ask £10 from each member (agreed at our first AGM) we are grateful for any contribution and many members give more. The funds we hold are spent on regeneration projects like clearing the bank of scrub, recreating the meadow, clearing invasive holly and improvement projects like the Information Boards and benches.

Members help us in so many ways: on our committee; joining in on our work days (which are every last Saturday in the month, except August and December); paying a yearly subscription; and delivering our newsletter. We hope that all this work ensures that the woodland is there for future generations.

S p r i ng into SUMMER

The summer solstice this year falls on 20 June at 10.43 pm which marks the end of spring and start of summer and will end with the autumn equinox which falls on 22 September this year. For us in the northern hemisphere it means early dawns, long days, late sunsets and short nights.
