The Lockdown Woods

Project Updates

Our Project

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought us all difficult times with many painful losses. Newbury Friends of the Earth is running The Lockdown Woods project which aims to turn the grief felt by our community into something beautiful.  We are planting three new memorial woodlands in West Berkshire which we hope to expand into 2021. Read on to find out more about our progress and how you and your family can be involved in the future.


Your wildlife

Calling budding naturalists for Wildlife Survey Opportunities! No experience necessary!. Our Lockdown Woods project is entering a new phase now. During this year we will conduct baseline monitoring of our Newbury sites, in the hope of working towards increasing the wildlife diversity in our new woodlands.


Would you like to get involved in botanical and insect surveys in Goldwell Park and Barn Crescent? Let us know, and we can give you more information. Email or Facebook group.
