If you went into the woods on Wednesday 9th August, you would have been in for a great surprise.
Sally Gurney, the Mayor of Wokingham unveiled Friends of Fox Hill’s new information board at the Dorset Way entrance to the woods. This is one of two; the second can be found at the Limmerhill Road entrance.
This was a great community project, 2 years in the planning, led by our Chair, Tim Lloyd, with financial support from Wokingham Town Council. We are grateful for the illustrations created by local artist, Vic Delaney, craftsmanship from our local branch of Men’s Shed, and WBC Countryside Services for the installation of the boards.
These boards will be a useful introduction to visitors of the woods, offering information about location, wildlife, and activities.
After the unveiling, refreshments were provided, and enjoyed by everyone on the day.
Pop down to the woods to see them and look out for the news article in the next issue of Wokingham Today.
