Work Days

You are very welcome to join our work days which start at 10.00 am on the last Saturday of the month (except August and December). (See dates below). If you would like to attend first of all please contact Maria Gatland. Her details are on the “contact” page of this website. Tools are provided but please bring a drink and/or snack if you feel you need them and always wear appropriate shoes and clothes.  You can work for as long as it suits you but usually we finish by lunch time.  All details and the meeting point will be available here on the website, on posters in the Hurst and also on Twitter – @GatlandMaria.

It is shameful that our last bench in the meadow funded by members of FOCHW was stolen over the summer. If anyone has any information about this please let me know.

The  next workday is this Saturday 25 January at 10am. Please meet at the entrance opposite West Hill on Upper Selsdon Road. We will be clearing the path that runs alongside Upper Selsdon Road which is very well-used and we want it to be as easy to use as possible. Cycling is not permitted along this path.

We are  very lucky to have such a wonderful ancient woodland on our door step and if you want to help please contact Maria.

PLEASE NOTE THAT SETTING FIRES OR BBQs ARE NOT PERMITTED IN OUR WOODS.


Pictured below are some of the many volunteers who regularly attend the work days. Thanks to you all.
