Secret pond grant

As mentioned earlier this year a grant to reinstate the secret pond was applied for. I am pleased to announce that we were successful as such I am appealing to friends of St Helens Woods for volunteers to carry out some of the work. Please contact via facebook or by phone on 07867126565. With many thanks Marshall

BBQ site

As we understand the guidelines for outdoor food and drink we would be obliged to sterilise the site before and aftereach use as we unable to provide this service the BBQ  will have to stay closed until there is a change in the guidance.

Romours going arounr the woods.

Some of you may have heard about a dangerous pack of dogs lost in the woods.
Here are some of the facts 3 dogs 1 male 2 female of the Bull dog breed (not pit bull) got out of a garden in the Dunclutha area and went on a jaunt on their own around the woods.They scared two walkers to such an extent they climbed a fence and phoned the police. A local dog walker rounded up the dogs and when the police arrived they caught the two bitches. All three were returned to there owner who had been looking for them .
Hoping this may lay to rest some of the rumours that are going around.
Stay safe and continue to enjoy the woods.
