And Invite from the Commons Conservators

On July the 6th, the Commons Conservators invite you to a drop-in work party on the Nettlebed Commons. Earlier in the year tree felling has taken place on the commons and the wood that was not of interest was left on the forest floor. The aim for the volunteering day is to clear up as much of the brushwood leftover from tree cutting earlier on the commons.

If you just want to join in for a few minutes rather than the...
