Local Groups

Friends of Groups

Local residents meet regularly to discuss the progress and future developments of their local woodlands. In adopting an area they are helping to sustain the future of their local area with added benefits such as applying for funding to provide extra facilities and services.

Quite often, such members develop into our eyes and ears for the woodland.
