Woodlands Group gains charity status
The West Fife Woodlands community group has become a registered Scottish Charity Organisation.
Who are we, what we do and where we do it?
The group which was started in 2006 by just two people has now a membership of over 50 members from all walks of life with 25 active members regularly participating on the Monday morning ‘workout’ activities.
On the workouts we undertake woodland management and path maintenance on 112 acres of Fife Council and Forestry Commission land.
We construct new woodland paths.
We are based at Shiresmill, near Blairhall.
The group over the past twelve years has achieved many improvements in the woodland areas it maintains and has won a national “Paths for All” community group award in recognition for building woodland paths.
We also hold regular monthly meetings to discuss the business of the group on the first Thursday of each month at Blairhall Community Centre from 7 to 9pm where members and non-members are made welcome.
We are always looking for new volunteers:
If you are 18 years of age or over and share our interests in maintaining/improving West Fife’s woodlands for the benefit and enjoyment of the community and visitors to the area, and would like to participate, why not contact us to find out more?
There is no joining fee; all we ask is that you complete a simple membership form to cover you on our insurance policy.
