If you have a wood burner and would like access to free logs from sustainable sources within the National Forest or have an interest in helping maintain some of the woodlands in the National Forest, then why not register to attend our Taster session to see how joining Heartwood Community Woodfuel Group can help you.

What's going on?

The move to our new woodland base is now becoming a reality, pre-work has been done by members at the recent working parties and we have grand plans for the site, so please get involved, it's a site we can all have input to and a site we can all make use of.

I hope this letter finds you and your family keeping safe and well.

Within Heartwood we have been working on a number of very significant developments that affect everyone within the group. All have been discussed at length by the committee, with this email being a resultant action of that discussion. Ordinarily we would have called an extraordinary or special meeting to bring everyone together, but circumstances mean we must communicate with everyone by whatever means we can.

What's Going On?

First of all apologies for the gap in newsletters. There has been a number of important projects ongoing over the last few months which are now stable and mature enough to give you an update.

What's going on?

Well this wasn't in the plan! The end of season arrived rather abruptly as you will all be aware, leaving us a little caught out with finishing off what we were doing. The grant work at Woodcote was completed, but we were working on how we could support the final few sessions there and at Donisthorpe. We had a plan, but sadly we had to close down very suddenly. We have left both sites in a safe and tidy state, but with a little timber remaining - we will try to extract that during the down-season if restrictions lift, taking any residual timber up to CEEP for group use, otherwise it will be a good start for next season.
