CANCELLED - Friends of Filnore Woods Work Morning
Thornbury Active Centre
***Too much rain so work party cancelled.***
From the Leisure Centre car park, cross the field to our white toolshed. You will be most welcome.
Work mornings are usually from 10am till 12pm on the second Sunday and fourth Wednesday of every month.
Next working morning is on Sunday 13th October. Current weather forecast is for light rain and a moderate breeze but it might improve.
The task is to start coppicing the next section of our coppice with standards wood. We shall be cutting what we can with handsaws and trimming off the brash with billhooks to make useful poles, stakes and pegs. This part of the wood has been growing for 20 years so the hazel will be a bit thicker. We are basically restoring the coppice so that in seven years' time or so, we shall have lots of nice straight useable poles.
