Our mission

Since 2020 our main project has been the Lockdown Woods. We have created five beautiful woodland environments across Newbury and West Berkshire. These woodlands are dedicated to those who lost their lives or faced hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Join us now as we continue to grow and nurture our Lockdown Woods over the coming years.
