We loved the stickman trail! Will there be another Julia Donaldson themed trail?
Forestry Commission Response
We have two themed trails coming up. The Autumn Trail which is in the woodland now, followed by the Christmas Trail which will be coming late November/early December.

Have you considered putting a few more dog bins around the woods, maybe at the junctions where the main paths meet.
Forestry Commission Response
We currently have five dog bins on site, which we feel is sufficient. As there are currently many trails it would be costly to put bins on all of them so we have put them on the start of the most popular ones and at two of our other entrance points.
