We are holding a coppicing event on the on Saturday 7th February 2015 10am-12.30pm.

Coppicing 1 003We will be cutting down some of the hazels near the main entrance to Spud Wood.  Coppicing will allow the hazels to  regenerate; the brash we cut down will be used to make a hedge to protect the stumps and make a wildlife tunnel.  The wood  can be taken by volunteers for their own use e.g. fencing, bean poles, fires etc

Do come along and get involved we are meeting at the kissing gate into the wood, on the path from Stage Lane car park.
