We are about to start the final season of tree planting at Heartwood Forest. By the end of March 2018, the last few trees will be in the ground.

Why not come along to one of the last two community planting sessions and play a part in the completion of this fantastic forest? The planting days are in November 2017 and March 2018. Hundreds of thousands of trees have been planted by volunteers, with just 40,000 left to go in this season.

Please make sure that you dress appropriately – it can be cold, wet and windy, but we have also planted in brilliant sunshine!

There will be refreshments available to buy, but feel free to bring your own food/drinks.

On Wednesday afternoon at Heartwood Forest the permissive bridleway running alongside the B651 was officially opened.

This has enabled the Woodland Trust to open up a new section of permissive bridleway, starting at the horse hop next to the entrance to Heartwood.

It runs parallel to the car park track, with a hedge separating it from the cars on the track.

At the other end, riders turn left away from the car park and over another horse hop allowing access onto the main bridleway going from Pound Farm up past Langley Wood.

This means that anybody wishing to do a full circuit no longer has to ride down the main road through Sandridge and it should make it much safer – and pleasanter – for anybody who likes to ride or cycle that route.
