Autumn Volunteer News – Wales


Dear Volunteers,

I don’t know about you, but I feel as though life is going whoosh again and there’s barely time for anything! As such I have organised our news in order of how much time it may take from your busy schedules – I hope you find this useful. In general, volunteer activity in Wales is back up to speed again and we have welcomed many new volunteers to our woodland working groups.

Warm autumnal wishes,
