Crick Woodlands provides places to walk, talk, meet and enjoy nature. It provides a safe and welcoming space where our children can learn about, and come to respect, the natural world around them. It protects and enhances a little of our precious environment for future generations to enjoy.
Since we joined the Local Lotto and encouraged others to become one of our supporters by buying tickets, we are on course to raise over £500 a year for Crick Woodlands. Thank you to all our supporters!
However, we are still a few supporters short of our target! When we set out we had hoped to raise enough funds to buy a machine to chip branches and cuttings we had cleared to create more light in Millennium Wood. However, having taken advice, the kind of chipper we would need would be very expensive to buy and only occasionally used. Instead we have asked a contractor to undertake the work for us but for each day this has cost £400. These costs are in addition to the work undertaken by contractors to cut down the unwanted growth, ready for chipping. So we are looking to raise more funds to cover our clearance and chipping costs. We can use the chippings we create in our woodlands on pathways when they become wet and muddy, to make them easier to walk. Using our own source of chippings also reduces the chance of bringing in disease and invasive weeds that could be the cosequence of using chippings from elsewhere.
Thank you for your support and good luck!
