As February came to a close, we invited volunteers to join us in a ‘Battle of the Bramble’ conservation task at Woodend Medieval Deer Park, Shute.

Young oak trees – planted in last decade to replace the older residents in the park – were choking in Bramble and help was needed to help clear the overgrown vegetation.


11 volunteers did battle with the bramble and won!

With a target of two deer-guarded, bramble-choked trees, our dedicated volunteers liberated five – they were clearly not bent on defeat!
