Work Party 24/01/2016

We once again had fine weather, exceptionally mild for the time of year, but we had to contend with extremely muddy conditions. One group planted whips donated by TCV in the bare area of the northern zone. Species included Field Maple, Cherry Plum, Bird Cherry  and Rowan. In addition they planted 250 native Bluebell bulbs in the same area. These should flower this spring and but should do better next spring. Depending on results we may extend the experiment.

New Year thank you

A good few Friends visited the wood this morning for our regular Boxing Day walk. Despite the wind, we had an enjoyable wander around spotting potential jobs for our next work party.

I'm sorry for the delay, but Phil Miller has asked me to pass on the following message to you all:-

Notice of Christmas Social and Boxing Day Walk

Friends,

In the absence of a meeting, we will be holding our usual Christmas Social. We would be pleased if you can join us on Tuesday 8 December 2015 at the Test Match, Gordon Road from 7:30pm when we will be informally chatting about what we have achieved this year and what we may plan for 2016.

I'll send out a reminder nearer the time, but we will also be having a walk around the wood on Boxing Day Saturday 26 December 2015 commencing at 10:30am from Peveril Drive.

If you are unable to attend either event we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

work party 22/11/2015

Once again we had fine weather, and most of us managed to stay sheltered from the cold wind. We were delighted to welcome the 4th West Bridgford scouts, who helped us to plant whips donated by the Woodland Trust. We planted mainly blackthorn in gaps along the eastern boundary, dog rose and elder along the sides of the main and western paths near the north end, and hazel in the north-west zone. Some of the scouts helped barrow wood chip from the pile at the southern end to where it was needed as mulch around the whips. We succeeded in planting all the whips apart from the crab apple. Also Chrissie planted an oak tree grown in her garden from an acorn, and Phil and Ben cleared fallen ash branches from some of the paths, the result of recent gales.
