Woodland Workday

Don’t forget that our next Lordship woodland workday (3rd Sunday of each month) is on Sunday 20th December, 1pm – 2pm in the woodland by the Downhills Park Rd entrance. All welcome to drop by.

Lordship Woodland Work Party

We shall be meeting in the woodland in lordship rec (by the Downhills Park Rd entrance) to do some light clearing of weeds etc on Sunday September 27th at 2o’clock.

This replaces the Sunday September 20th event which is cancelled.

Please bring secateurs,garden shears,gloves,and possibly a garden fork or spade as we may be digging up some persistent dogwood.

Hope to see you there!


Friends of Lordship Rec – Woodlands Sub-Group

On Sunday around 8 of us had a work-in in the woodland in Lordship Rec (near the Downhills Park Rd gate) to continue our efforts to thin out some of the dense shrubs and remove dogwood.

There will be a site visit at the Woodland on Monday 24th August, 9.30am.

We will be meeting up with the Council’s Conservation Officer, Ian Holt, to discuss how we can help manage the woodland for nature conservation purposes whilst ensuring it is attractive for visitors.

All who wish to get involved in the sub-group are welcome!
