Green Light Trust events

The Green Light Trust, in partnership with Suffolk County Council, is organising two events where you can learn more about owning and managing a community woodland. On Wednesday 21st they'll be at Moreton Hall Community Centre, near Bury St Edmunds, and on 22nd June they'll be at Debenham Community Centre. Both are from 6 to 8pm, beginning with a presentation and ending with a visit to the local community woodland. RSVPs by 16th June. If anyone would like to see what other groups are doing (especially what Moreton Hall woodlanders have done for disabled visitors), please let us know.

The trust reports: Susan Hollister is part of the 'Wildwood' group in Needham Market, which formed in 2002 and now has its own hectare of woodland.
"Without the advice, support, enthusiasm and expertise of the Green Light team I am certain our project would never have started, as the range and depth of knowledge required was initially quite intimidating. Their visionary approach to creating new woodlands, encouraging local biodiversity and educating all ages and abilities within the community helped us to set up a project which will enhance our local environmental heritage for countless future generations."
