Woodcutters welcome more volunteers

A CLEVEDON group which maintains a town woodland is on the lookout for more members.

Woodcutters for Wildlife has, for 20 years, helped to maintain wildlife habitats in Norton’s Wood on the Clevedon Court estate through annual coppicing and thinning of its trees.

It also planted the Millennium Orchard off Brookfield Walk in 2000 and two years later it planted 2,500 trees and shrubs to create a new wood between the Blind Yeo river and Davis Lane.

Founder of the group, Fred Quinney, has now handed over the running of the scheme to a new committee, which is inviting more people to help with its work. It is especially in need of someone with a chainsaw licence.

For more details call Simon on 01275 877206.
