National Coppice Week- 12th- 20th October
At last it’s here, the event that you and your coppice plots didn’t know you were waiting for – National Coppice Week 2019! This is an intiative from the National Coppice Federation (NCFed) to promote coppicing and all its benefits to the wider world by co-ordinating a week of coppice based events across the country. It stems from National Coppice Day – an idea started by our very own Vince and Louise at Hardwick Wood.
Strictly speaking, the dates are 12th to 20th October, though it’s possible to include things a little way either side of this. Many of you will already be running workparties during this time, which would be ideal events to include. Some of you may even fancy organising something special which would also be great! Both the Trust and the NCFed are going to be aiming to attract some media attention and so it could be a good opportunity to attract some new volunteers and interest for your workparties.
If you’d like to have your workparty listed go to http://ncfed.org.uk/coppiceweek/ and click on ‘Register an Event’
