Throughout the years this project should run we hope to have many events for all to participate in, from the initial planting to surveys, parties, Willow weaving and haymaking, moth and bird watching,  wildlife surveys to maybe even Shakespeare in the wood, who knows!

Other groups have given us a host of ideas and we hope to use as many as we can.

**********************************************************************

We hope to organise another Bluebell Walk in 2012.

Details here when available.

Bluebell Walk. 2010.

Sunday 9th MAY 10 AM TO 3PM

Once again we are  organising this event and this year open it up to other woodland groups and  are advertising it with other Tree Wardens in the Maldon area to get more takers.  It is a unique opportunity to visit a working woodland in our area, one of a handful still existing. 

Members  of Twig will be on hand to give advice and information.

Come and have an hours walk through this blaze of blue!

You can find 'TWIG' signs on the end of Lodge road where it joins the A414, between Maldon's Morrison's roundabout and the Woodham Mortimer roundabouts. Follow the signs to the wood or ring us on  01621 778859 or mobile on the day, 07850 286607.

Helping Mundon Parish council in Mundon Woods....?

Planting the new woodland? ??????

**********************

Sadly we never heard from ECC again re Bradwell Road, we will press them again.... Never had a reply from Mundon either....  New Woodland, well the legal sides are taking forever, but at least we still move forward....  2009? Latest from St. Paul's is very promising, they have offered even more land! But another delay...

We will  be doing our annual Seed Gathering, more soon.
