New Year’s Day Walk Hopefully the weather will be good this year! We’ll start a little
later and go a little further; about 5 miles of ramblings to walk off the excesses
of the festive season...bring lunch and a drink. We’ll aim to end around 3pm.
September onwards Time to order your firewood! Support your local woodland, buy from
us - phone Ruperra Countryside Services for logs and kindling - 07977 599181 or
We'd like to thank the players of the People's Postcode Lottery, who have made it
possible this year for us to lay 400 metres of native hedge for wildlife. Our hedgelaying
team were funded by a fantastic grant of £9268, and the woodland birds, bats, dormice
and insects will all benefit from the work.
More information on this can be found on the People's Postcode Lottery website, www.postcodelottery.co.uk
