March 2016 - Ignorant planting of daffodils


Unfortunately, it has been found that individual(s) have been planting  garden type daffodils at the wood. Whilst this may be well-meaning, only woodland type flowers can be planted and with the owners' permission. No such permission has been requested or granted and so a friendly warning to whoever is responsible to please cease!

November 2016 - Supporting National Tree Week


The trust backed the annual National Tree Week, 26th November to 4th December run by the Tree Council to raise awareness across the UK for planting trees. Around 250,000 people take part and over 1 million trees were planted this year. National Tree Week encourages individuals, communities and families across the UK to change their views about the value and significance of trees in their lives. 

Chairperson of the Trust, Mrs Audrey Davies said, "We are delighted to support National Tree Week to encourage local people to plant new trees and appreciate the importance of trees to our communities."


July 2016 - Butterfly survey


This month, members of the Trust took part in a butterfly survey to identify what types frequent Harmers Wood. This was the first year the Trust has carried out the survey and it hopes to turn it into an annual event. We were delighted to find six varieties of butterfly during the course of one week whilst carefully checking each day across the 9 acre site.
