It was great to see so many people from our participant social enterprises at the recent woodland management training day organised by the Woodland Trust and hosted at Hill Holt Wood on Wednesday 22 March.
Both familiar and new faces were there to discuss really important components of managing the natural and social resources of woodlands. Woodland Trust staff gave a series of presentations for the attendees on management planning, volunteer management and holding events, along with providing some concrete insights and resources.
We were also grateful to Chris Reynolds of the Forestry Commission for his run through the felling licencing process and rules. Everyone pitched in with their own experiences to create a really rich day of learning. Feedback from the event was overwhelmingly positive with participants reporting that they were now likely to take forward management planning and volunteering activities. Our Making Local Woods Work events have been attended by more than 350 people so far and we will be providing many further opportunities for such networking and learning. We look forward to welcoming many of you to them.
