Friends of Filnore Woods


Keeping Filnore Woods attractive for people and for wildlife needs a lot of work. Brambles, thistles and nettles are trying to take over the site and the grass needs cutting at least once a year to retain and promote the wildflowers. We rely on volunteers to do this valuable work. If you would like to get involved you can join the email list by emailing below or phone Jerry Dicker.
