Annual General Meeting

The AGM of the Friends of Filnore Woods last month was attended by 18 people.  All the usual stuff happened with the committee re-elected en bloc and reports showing we are OK financially and have achieved a lot in the past year - 
  • bridge repairs over the stream, 
  • brambles controlled,
  • path and track improvements,
  • steps built, 
  • awards from Thornbury in Bloom, 
  • health and safety policy, risk assessments and emergency first aid procedures in place
  • our first coppice coupe cut, 
  • a bat walk and a dawn chorus walk held, 
  • surveys conducted,
  • litter cleared,
  • a 10' container installed as a lockable toolstore, 
  • three scythes purchased and a start made on scything. 
Altogether a great set of achievements by the volunteer team.  Well done.

Future plans include hedge laying, charcoal making, green woodwork and even an amphitheatre for dramatic, musical and other cultural events.  I did say 'future'!  You gotta have dreams.
