The work of The Friends

Many of our members are actively involved in the work of the Friends group. Whether it be by becoming part of
one of our teams of working party volunteers or by helping us to raise funds to support the group and its aims.
We are always looking for dedicated volunteers and will shortly have our formal membership application up online.

 We  as a group have some very exciting projects ahead  and we will update you with the details on our plans very soon.

 In the meantime we have already been active this year and the committee meets each month to continue with our future planning

 and to start moving forward the projects we hope to undertake.

Come and see what the friends have been doing

As we move forward we will be looking for people who enjoy being outdoors to come and spend a little time with us. 
 By joining one of our working parties you will not only be treated to time spent in a wonderful natural environment,
but contributing to the renovation and ongoing management of Coombeswood Wedge.

It is also a great opportunity to make new friends.
