Friends of Common Wood

Whether or not you managed to secure one of the coveted tickets for Friday 1st October, we are sure that you would like to know more about the evening and the launch of ‘Friends of Common Wood’

(L-R) Earl Howe, Miles Green, Mark Titterington (c) Scott Barrett

At our Open Evening in the Village Hall, 150 guests enjoyed these talks:

Miles Green gave us a brief overview of the history of the extent and importance of our woods in the past – we think we may need to organise further evenings where he can expand on this in more detail.
Earl Howe described how the woods on his estate are managed today and the key threats to the trees; deer, squirrels, careless fires and occasional vandalism.
Mark Titterington concluded with a look at the increasingly crucial role woods will be playing in the future of carbon capture as we face increased global warming.
David Harris explained how the financing of Common Wood and our local open spaces has become increasingly onerous to the Residents Society and launched our appeal for volunteers and donors to enjoy, support and conserve our woods, by becoming a Friend of Common Wood.

Becoming a Friend of Common Wood signals your support for the long-term well-being of Common Wood.  Your support could be helping to raise funds, assisting with woodland maintenance or by making a financial donation to help us Enjoy, Support and Conserve the woodlands for generations to come.
