Welcome to our newsletter archive, a valuable resource that we use to communicate with all of our Friends. If you
have not yet registered as a Friend of the Trust, please do so, we can then keep you informed
of developments at the woodland.
Newsletters are presented in reverse chronological order - the latest first.
Hard working volunteers really do make a difference! The new glades are really taking shape and we would love your views on a new Memorial lodge.
Last years Open Day, part of the Diocese of St Albans ‘Celebrate 100’, was such a success with over 4000 joining the celebrations. We also selected the three new glade names!
Trust creates 6 new glades and avenue of trees! Another 9.4 acres opened giving us 12 acres of woodland already. The additional land has been afforded the greatest protection possible under English Law.
The woodland recorded its busiest year so far. We also had Volunteers from the RSPB visit, observe and record the different species of birds, 20 so far. Plus, our first Owl box is up!
Announcement made to expand woodland. Planning permission granted and footpath to be moved. Excellent advice from Faith Woodland Communities on biodiversity.
