Great Progress at Two Important Sites over the Last Three Weeks


The achievement over the last three weeks has been phenomenal. Work will continue at Workhouse Wood for at least another two weeks and then we will turn our attention to the woods at the east end of Winn's Common. So far the CWP team have contributed over 350 hours of manpower to the nature reserve and Workhouse Wood. In return we owe them a happy, good, safe working environment. If any member can offer a couple of hours or a whole shift from Monday to Friday between the hours of 9am to 4pm to supervise the project, please contact me. Your contribution will be welcomed and I will give you all the assistance you need to familiarise yourself with the project and the associated risk assessment.

These beautiful woods have been a well-kept secret behind that horrid corrugated iron fence fro far too long. It turns out that even some of our own members don't know of its existence. Well here it is! Go and have a look at what we have already achieved.


The nature reserve needs constant care now. Perhaps more of us could get down there at our leisure and keep an eye on it. If we are keen for schools to use it then we must ensure it is clean and safe for them. We have now repaired the vandalised railings. The rough sleeper has gone. It turns out that he was actually sleeping on private land! The boundaries between the reserve and the gardens at the rear of some Blendon Terrace houses is not clear and I have discovered that some of our hard work has been in the private land at the north end of Blendon Terrace. The owner of No.16 will soon be erecting a fence to make one boundary clearer. I think we will have to regard the land at the rear of Nos 18 and 20 as part of our remit as the land is contiguous with the reserve, and users of the beautiful green space would not know it is privately owned
