Events and Projects coming up

 

Coppicing

Next coppicing ~ 12th & 13st March 2016

We held a weekend coppicing session in November 2015   . It went well, and another coppicing weekend is planned for the third weekend in February, 20/02/16 - 21/02/16, aiming to complete the current section. We have planned the dates early and late in the winter as members are often too busy over the Christmas period, and the weather is too unreliable.
We plan to do two or three weekends of coppicing again in the winter 2016-2017. We will post dates here nearer the time.

 

Coed Panteg work days - 2nd Sunday every month.

 

We try to have a regular work days at Coed Panteg on the 2nd weekend each month, but sometimes other commitments get in the way, so please check before coming.

We aim to start at around 10.30am (turn up whenever you feel like it) and we're usually there until about 5.00pm, or until dark - whichever is earlier. Hot drinks, some lunch things and biscuits will be provided but please feel free to bring things to share. If the weather is nice we may stay and have food around a fire in the evening. Some of the things we are proposing to do over the next few months include work on the culvert under the track which regularly blocks and floods the track, scrub clearance in the clearing to keep it open, improving the parking area at the top of the track, and there is always work to keep back the ever encroaching brambles from pathways

Please contact us to confirm details and times, as sometimes weather or other unforeseen events cause last minute changes to our plans.

 

 

 

Barn Building

 

Thanks to a grant secured by Lucy, we had had the track extended to the bottom of the meadow in Feb 2012. As well as improving access to get wood and produce out of the woodland, this will also enable us to get materials down to the meadow to build the long awaited barn. We hope it will provide storage for basic tools and equipment, a kitchen area for work days and weekends, and a sleeping platform to make it easier to stay in the woods on work weekends - hopefully we can store bedding there too.

We are now looking at funding options for building the barn, and when relevant we will start raising interest from volunteers to help build it.

As we continue through the process we will share our plans and progress here, so watch this space...

 

Please contact us for more information, or to arrange to visit at any other time.
