Event description

Description

Join Deneholme Wood Volunteers in a morning of basic woodland management, have a brew round the fire, and learn some new skills.

The volunteers will walk you through the wood and talk about the management techniques they are undertaking to preserve and maintain this wonderful wood. There will also be an opportunity to take part in some practical skills application. We need to repair the revetments at the edge of our ancient beech circle to protect them from erosion. This will include cutting natural materials to size and moving them into position (more interesting than it sounds!).

We will have a fire going, on which we can make hot drinks and campfire refreshments.

You'll need to wear stout footwear suitable for uneven terrain, and clothing appropriate for the weather (i.e. waterproofs). There are some steep sections in the wood, so a basic level of fitness is recommended. Please bring a mug with you for drinks, if possible. All and tools and safety equipment will be provided. Children 10+ are welcome, but must be accompanied by an adult.

Meet outside Allendale Village Hall just before 10am please!

We look forward to welcoming you to the wood!
