Quotes

"Visitor facilities improvements will provide better access and new information panels along a self-guided trail."
Councillor Mary Sheldon, Portfolio Holder for Leisure and Culture, said, "If you come down to the woods this month, you will find many exciting things to do and discover. The Countryside Team are always happy to share their incredible knowledge of the commons and of its wildlife and habitats. Make the most of their free events. They are both great fun and highly informative. And if you would like to get involved in local conservation, please get in touch. By joining us as a volunteer, you will be able to take part in many different rewarding activities, based on your interest and abilities"
"After taking care of your family and friends, leaving a gift in Will to your favourite charity is truly a legendary thing to do. No matter the size, a charitable gift can help the invaluable work of our favourite causes live on – long after we're gone."
"The project will also benefit a range of other priority species dependent upon pioneer heathland habitat, such as mottled bee-fly, heath-grasper spider and early sunshiner ground beetle. Our regular volunteers, many of whom worked on phase one of the project, are raring to go but we still need new recruits prepared to get their hands dirty in the name of insect conservation."
