CHOPWELL WOOD EVENTS  2020

ALL EVENTS & VOLUNTEERING ARE CANCELLED FROM TODAY (17/3/20) UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE DUE TO THE CORONAVIRUS CRISIS. WE HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO HOLD OUR USUAL BAT WATCH OR FUNGAL FORAY THIS YEAR. HOWEVER, WE HOPE THAT THE MAIN PART OF THE CHRISTMAS TREE SALES WILL BE ABLE TO GO AHEAD.
  

Volunteering Wednesdays
CANCELLED

Wednesdays, 10am


Our dedicated volunteers meet on a Wednesday morning at the Forest Classroom to carry out conservation and maintenance tasks in the Wood, in partnership with  Forestry England.
New helpers are welcome and should attend only on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month.  Trained staff should be available on those days to help new volunteers.
Woodland Spring Clean

Do your bit to help keep Chopwell Wood looking tip top!  Pop along between 11.30am and 2.30pm, for as long as you can spare. Meet in the main car park and we’ll provide the gloves, bags and litter pickers. There’ll be a catering van in the car park and Spring Clean helpers will get complimentary refreshments.  See you there!

Chopwell Christmas Experience
Proposed Opening Saturday 28 November
We hope to go ahead with the sale of trees and wreaths on the usual site next to the car park. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions there will not be a Craft Marquee, and Santa is unlikely to be able to visit the woodland this year.  It is planned to have catering at weekends.

Our events programme is subject to change but all details will be posted here and on our Facebook page.
