       News and Events

 Due to the change in organisation of the Trust there will no longer be talks, walks or events. For a fuller explanation of     this  see here.      

A current project for the Trustees is to establish a new path through Johnson’s Wood  making it possible to walk through one gate and out another.

So far we have cleared a huge amount of bramble and undergrowth and will soon be clearing a path through to the site of the new gate. If you would be interested in helping please contact us - the more the merrier!


It might be of interest to see what we offered in past years……………
