Everything interesting we can think of about Alhampton's community woodland. To leave a comment on a post, click on its title and scroll down…

FHW Committee

As with most things, there has to be an admin bit and ours can be found here. Links to committee meeting minutes are on this page and you can see the ratified Constitution here too.

After the first planting in March of this year (2013), the first meeting of the Friends of Haddon Wood was held in the Manor in Ditcheat on 11th April. Jon Burgess of the Woodland Trust was in the chair and explained that its purpose was to identify methods of funding for the parts of the wood requested by locals, but not covered by the remit of the WT – namely a wild flower meadow, a wildlife pond and an orchard. You can see the notes of that meeting if you click here… Meeting 11.4.13 At the same meeting it was agreed to hold a further meeting of the Friends of Haddon Wood to elect a committee.

That second meeting was held on 1st May 2013 and centred on the main discussion of whether we actually needed a committee. Jon explained that whilst he wanted as much local engagement and enthusiasm for the project as possible, it would make communication between the WT and the Friends much easier and more efficient – and give the Friends a much stronger voice with the WT if a committee was set up with a proper constitution. The notes of that meeting are here… FHW Meeting 1-5-13 but the short version is that a committee was elected and its members agreed to yet another meeting to draft a constitution.
