The first scavenging day of the season at Bourne Wood was very well attended with 14 people coming to collect wood.

The Friends of Bourne Wood organised the event with the format remaining the same with people bringing their own wheelbarrows and borrowing saws to collect the wood from the previously felled trees, which was mostly ash.

Collection was slightly easier this time as the access tracks were all well maintained paths, and not so far from the car park and there was plenty of wood.

Several people had more than one barrow full; in fact the energetic people had three barrowloads!

Sarah Roberts, from the Friends group said: “It was a very successful day, which those taking part thoroughly enjoyed. It is a good way to enjoy the fresh air and get some exercise while finding some reasonably priced 
wood.

“The days are always popular with a regular clientele.”

The group hopes to hold another event in March.
