Tarvin Woodland competes for support

Home » Newsroom » Woodland completes path

As a part of their 'Green Flag Award' scheme, 'Keep Britain Tidy', the operating organisation, runs a competition for all the winning sites whereby their supporters are able to cast a vote to find the nation's favourite open space.

The Trustees hope that more members of the community will enjoy the woodland now that it is more small-wheeled buggy and mobility scooter friendly. The seats and surrounding areas now offer the facility to park and ponder and won't keep getting overgrown.

One of the worst is the one that leads from the bypass through the fields near Austin's hill . I know a lot of...
