Events and Work through the winter.


The Coppicing Group meet twice monthly, on the first Sunday, and the third Saturday, at 10.00 am, for 2 -3 hours in the Winter months. From April, the Summer schedule is in place (check Summer Schedule Poster when applicable).   The meeting place is at the Thatched Cottage in Bolnore Village for both days. It is conveniently close to our new tool store.  If you live outside Bolnore Village, the Thatched Cottage is accessible via the Bridleway from Ashenground Railway Bridge. The meeting place is where Renfields crosses the Bridleway.  Not all the work involves coppicing –we are also busy mowing the grassy places, and cutting back path edges. Litter picking and other light work for the less fit is also an important element. All tools are provided.

You don’t need experience –training will be given.  Please wear stout footwear.
Members and non-members are welcome, but under 16s must be accompanied by an adult, who will be responsible for them throughout.

The organisers of the Haywards Heath Marathon are seeking volunteers to marshall the leg of the marathon which runs through Ashenground Woods and Bolnore Village.  The date for the HH event is 5th May 2019.  We meet at Ashenground Bridge at 10:00 a.m, and from past experience in marshalling this event through the woodland, usually finishes around 12:30.  If you are interested in being a Marshall, please contact Simon Adby:



We also  run some special events during the year. Members and non-members are welcome. Information about these will be posted here and on the notice boards in the woods. Events are Free of Charge to members and non-members.  Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult, who will be responsible for them throughout.
