Over the weekend, members of the Society's committee worked alongside other community and interest groups at the launch of the 'Forester's Forest', at the Magna Carta event on Speech House field.
You may recall that the 'Foresters’ Forest' is a Heritage Lottery Funded Landscape Partnership Programme to raise awareness of what makes the Forest of Dean special in terms of its built, natural and cultural heritage. The launch aimed to make people more aware of the programme and also to offer opportunities to volunteer with some of the many and varied activities which will take place through the various projects currently under development.
There will be a website soon, but in the meantime, go to the facebook link below to learn more. We also plan to have people involved in the project come along to some of our meetings to talk about various aspects, so keep an eye out for that in the Society's website news pages.
