Our continuing priority is to focus on the trees that have already been planted in previous years, as they need assistance to survive. We will clear back growth from the fledgling saplings, and then mulch them with woodchip from our stockpile. There are over 5,000 young trees in the woods, so plenty of helping hands are needed! We also maintain a network of paths to improve access to the woods, which local people have told us they enjoy using.
We meet 10am at the Dane Valley Woods HQ in Dane Valley allotments at the end of St Peters Footpath, or you can find us in the woods – we are easy to spot in our hi-viz yellow jackets!
(Don’t forget the clocks go back the night before!)
There is no need to book – we provide all tools and safety equipment, but please wear a sturdy pair of shoes and come dressed for the weather.
All ages welcome, under 16s to be accompanied by an adult. Hot drink refreshments are provided at the end of the morning for all hard working volunteers.
