In October 2015 we received Grown in Britain Accreditation for Hockeridge and Pancake woods - independent recognition that they are managed in accordance with the UK Forestry Standard for sustainable woodland management in the UK.
RFS and the Chiltern Society are working together at Hockeridge and Pancake Wood to organise conservation volunteer work parties to support the management of the wood. Activities include ride restoration, footpath maintenance, tree planting and weeding and pond clearance. New volunteers are always welcome!
An article written by John Morris on the work of the volunteers for the Quarterly Jounal of Foresty can be downloaded right. A report on the work of the volunteers also appears in the Chiltern Woodlands Project Annual Report available here.
