Help to save Cannon Hill woodlands
THE Friends of Uddens and Cannon Hill Woodlands are giving readers the chance to get out in the fresh air and to do some work for the benefit of local people.
They have arranged with the Dorset Countryside Ranger Service to hold a joint working party on Saturday 2nd February on the section of the Castleman Trailway that passes through Uddens woodland.
They hope to improve access along the trailway and should there be enough volunteers to improve some of the other paths within this part of the woodland.
Tools and gloves will be supplied by the ranger service, but people are asked to wear suitable outdoor clothing. All work will be supervised by one of the Dorset Countryside Rangers who will be on hand to show you what needs doing and more importantly, how to do it should you be unsure. Therefore, experience is most definitely not necessary. There will be tasks to suit all ages and abilities including scrub clearance, branch pruning and path work. Hot and cold drinks along with biscuits and cakes will be provided for all those taking part. (If you don't feel up to the physical work involved, they also need help with making the drinks).

The event starts at 10am and finishes at 3.30pm but participants don't have to work all day. However, if you do plan to, bring a packed lunch.
Michael Gorse, chairman of The Friends said: "This is a great opportunity to do you bit in improve the woodland for all, as well as showing the Council how serious we all are about protecting this much used area of woodland. "The Friends of Uddens and Cannon Hill Woodlands have worked very hard attempting to save this piece of woodland from development as a gypsy/traveller transit site. We believe work parties such as this will back up our contention that these woodlands are used and valued by the local community; therefore they should not be developed."
The meeting point is at the entrance to the woodlands off Uddens Drive (the southern end near the Old Thatch Pub) and someone will be there all day to direct you.
It would be helpful (but not essential) to know numbers, so if possible let Michael know by phone on either 01202 886160 or 077 8369 2181 or email email@example.com or via their Facebook page.
