If you didn`t see the article about Finings Wood in the latest Summer 22 Clarion magazine, may I recommend it to you. Katy Dunn has described what might happen if we don`t acquire these woods and suggests the benefits to all if we are successful.
In summing up the article she writes…
`Actions so far include writing to the vendor with the Group’s concerns and objectives, looking into the possibility of a community crowdfunding project and compiling a list of possible buyers to approach who might have the requisite funds and sympathetic attitude to contribute in full or in part to the wood’s purchase.`
Keep a look out for when the crowd funding effort goes live. At the moment both the vendor and his agent are sympathetic to our plans to own, maintain, protect and enjoy Finings Wood as a community asset.
A big thanks to all of you who visited our stand at the Lane End Fete and at Lacey`s Family Farm Open Day last Sunday. A lot more people are now getting the full message about Finings Wood, an Ancient Woodland in the heart of the village.
