2016 Blackberry day! – August 27th


As in 2015, our last Saturday of the month Open Day will be about blackberrying, so come along with your old margarine tubs or other containers. 

The reserve will be open between 1.00 and 4.00 pm, and entrance is free, but donations to support the work of the Friends group are welcome.  We have recently set up a list of things to do:

Things to do!

where you will see some of the work your donations can support, as well as larger scale projects for which external funding will be needed.

We’re also looking forward to welcoming members of the Forest Hill WI, and are thinking about how we could use the kitchen in the Field Studies centre as well. Does anyone else have spare apples, which could be used up in blackberry and apple pie or jam?  If so, bring them along to share.

As well as blackberrying, and just enjoying the amazing bit of woodland that is Dacres Wood, with views of our pond,


there will also be opportunities to help with some of the tasks on our list of things to do.

And how do you think we can get the best use for the community of Dacres Wood and the Field Studies centre?  What other groups can we link up with?

Come along, and let’s exchange ideas.
