Spring clean and woodland work day

Residents are being invited to help take part in the annual spring clean-up of Ridge Wood on Sunday 26 April from 10am.

Organised by the Friends of Ridge Wood Community Group and South Gloucestershire Council, volunteers with a few hours to spare are invited to help clear litter and rubbish throughout the wood as part of continuing efforts to help managing the woodland.

Local schools use the wood as an outdoor classroom, which makes keeping it litter-free even more important.

You can also take part in other woodland management work, including digging out invasive Spanish bluebells and helping tidy around the woodland entrances.

South Glos Council will provide all the necessary gloves, bags and tools. If you're interested in taking part, people are meeting at 10am on Sunday 28 April on the public footpath at the top of Melrose Close entrance to the woodland.

Anyone who is interested in helping with the future management of the woodland, and those interested in the wildlife and historical features of the site, are welcome to join the Friends of Ridge Wood Community Group.

For more information you can visit or contact the Friends of Ridge Wood Community Group/South Glos Council on 01454 863725.
