A summary
Charlotte’s Wood may be small but it still needs a bit of TLC from time to time. When it does, we run a Woodland Working Party to help out with simple tasks such as pruning, pathway and hedgerow maintenance. In order to get the woodland safe and ready for the spring term activities, I am looking for volunteers who could spare two or three hours on the afternoon of Tuesday 9th January 2024 to help with some gentle tasks around the woodland. It's a great way of keeping fit, meeting other people and connecting with the environment (plus it's FREE!)
