Your membership helps to keep Chopwell Wood such a special place but it’s not just about subscriptions – we welcome anyone who wants to get involved and we especially appreciate help at events.   Our Volunteers meet in the Wood every Wednesday to help with conservation and maintenance.  Many hands make light work so come on down if you can help out.
