Community engagement feedback and next visit to Foundry Wood!

April 5, 2012 by General Administrator
Hello all,

Please see below for details of our next work party at the woodland and some feedback from the initial community consultation.

When: Sunday 15th April 11am – 3pm
What: Clearing brambles (and other weeds before they start to get out of control!)
Where: Meet at Victoria Park Car park (opposite the entrance to the tip on Princes Drive)
Please note: Gloves and Tools will be provided, please wear appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear. BTCV (British Trust of Conservation Volunteers) are kindly supplying tools so please let us know in advance if you plan to come along so we can ensure we have enough equipment to go round!

As before, it’s a great opportunity to come look at the woodland if you’ve not been as well as get involved and help with the transformation of the site!

Community Woodland  Consultation – feedback so far and the site has a name….

We’d like to thank everyone who came along to their consultation evenings last month, filled in the survey or gave their feedback and suggestions for the woodland that is being created as part of the Ford Foundry redevelopment.
Plans for activities on site are currently being drawn up and we have taken on board the suggestions of nature trails, designated wildlife areas, outdoor education spaces, wild play areas (amongst many others!) We’ll hopefully have a site map/drawing soon.
By far the most popular name for the area was ‘Foundry Wood’ – which is both simple and appropriate given the location of the site.
In the coming months a new website will be launched, and we’ll be creating a ‘Friends of Foundry Wood’ group. If you would like to get involved or learn more in the meantime, please visit  continue to visit

Many thanks

Kristie Naimo
