A community woodland project, is preparing for its first working party of the month and seeking volunteers to help with tree maintenance.

On Saturday, April 7, from 9.30am members of the Diss Community Woodland Project - which manages Quaker Wood, in Factory Lane, Roydon - will be holding a working party.

The main tasks of the day will be tree care and ditch clearance. Volunteers will be cleaning and repairing sapling tree guards and stakes and also clearing a small stretch of ditch.

All are welcome to attend the working parties, which are held on the first and third Saturday of every month.

No special experience is required, although wellies are recommended for those helping with ditch clearing.

Refreshments will be provided mid morning.

Since it was started in 2006, Quaker Wood has grown to become a haven for wildlife.

Volunteers would like to remind anyone visiting the woodland not to disturb or remove any of the area’s wildlife.
