Welcome

Welcome to the Friends of Fox Hill. We are a community group created to support access to, and the conservation of, this area of much-loved woodland on the edge of Woosehill in Wokingham, Berkshire.

We are all local volunteers with an interest in open spaces and their flora and fauna. Anyone with an interest in supporting our work can be a member. You can follow our news on here, take part in our conservation activities (see Events), or even make a donation! We also welcome new members to join our small committee and take on an active role.
