Thank you!

Dear Friends of Fox Hill

This afternoon we held a public meeting and our inaugural AGM. The meeting was very well attended with around 90 present including local councillors.

I hope everyone found the presentation informative. Members of our new committee have worked extremely hard to research and collate a huge amount of information about the woods on Fox Hill and Round Hill, and the ways we can protect and conserve them. In addition there are a number of people who didn’t speak at the meeting who are working hard right now to keep the woods litter free, and are monitoring the the wildlife. Others have been hugely influential on social media, and by delivering flyers, in making sure everyone locally knows about the issues surrounding the woodland. Many thanks to everyone.

Please remember the two most important things you can do to help:

  • Firstly please make sure you’re a member of our new community group. If you left your e-mail address at the meeting, we’ll be in touch, otherwise please send an email to
  • Secondly please take the time to respond to the local plan consultation. We’ll be posting information on the website to make sure you have the information you need to make sure that our woodland is removed from the development plan!

Going forward, we’re going to be a community conservation group, and we hope lots of people will get involved in protecting, enhancing and enjoying our beautiful, special, ancient woodland.

Best wishes
