Car rally on last weekend, wasnt advertised on website, nor was the fact that mtb trails were closed, so a wasted drive down there
Hi sorry about your disappointment regarding the closure of the bike trails last weekend we ony close the trails when we really have to and when it would be prudent to in relation to health and safety. The rally was advertised at least a month in advance via a sign on the main drive, information was also put on the Sherwood Pines Facebook page giving two weeks notice of the bike trails being closed. The bike shop also advertised the trail closures on their Facebook page. The FC put the relevant info on the Sherwood Pines web pages as a headline feature 3 days before the event, there were also two signs on the main drive the Weds before the rally stating that the rally was on and the the trails would be closed. We try to do as much as we can to minimise visitor disappointment and wasted journeys. Once again apologies for your wasted journey. All of the bike trails are open this weekend although there is a diversion in place at sections 17 and 18 on the red route.
I can't see the Christmas tree sale as an event in the calendar- are you selling them this year? I have followed a link from the main forestry website, but can not find any info on Christmas trees on your site :/
Hi Angela, Thanks for your comment. I realised at the weekend that the web pages hadnt been updated for Christmas! I have worked on it today and it should appear sometime today linked off the Sherwood Pines main page.
5 StarsHi Karina, Just to say thanks again for a fabulous Bushcraft Day on Friday. Finn and Louis (and Dave and myself) thoroughly enjoyed it and we practised both the firelighting and whittling skills on our camping trip straight after. We would really like details of the Fire Day you are running later in the year. Please email us the info if possible. Thanks again! Debra
