With the help of Groundwork North East and Cumbria, each week we have been working in Fishburn Woods managing the woodlands to improve access.
We have been widening paths, clearing glades of fallen trees, low branches, and generally opening up the space to make it more inviting.
We’re also creating a new entrance, clearing a pond of bulrushes and surfacing a nearby path that floods.
We need your help! This is practical, and physical outdoor work all year round. Tasks include woodland management, path maintenance, pond maintenance, tree planting, coppicing. Wear clothing you are happy to get dirty, we will provide PPE and tools. No training or previous experience necessary, just a sense of humour, a packed lunch and willingness to get stuck in.
