Jul 24 Hedgelaying, coppicing and management courses By Tracy

There are some exciting new courses available in the SE for woodland owners.

Sellindge, Ashford, Kent, with hazel Coppice.
This course will enable participants to cut their own Stakes & Binders & use them to lay a section of hedge.This is a practical & sometimes demanding physical activity, which should be noted, but in saying that everyone is welcome. No dates have been set, that will happen as people make contact to book their place.
They do not need to supply anything, except their own refreshments & wear old suitable clothes, allowing for the weather. All tools & PPE is supplied & they will be supplied with written notes to take away with for future reference.
The cost for each person for a two day course is £60 per person & will be supplied a map to find the site when I have received
their cheques. All proceeds will go to support East Kent Coppice & Hedgerow Organisation, of which they will become automatic members.
The courses will on a weekend, 10.00 til 16.00 each day, (Sat & Sun) unless there are enough people who would prefer weekdays by special arrangement.
A maximum of three persons per course, if through illness anyone cannot attend once they have paid, every effort will be made to
accommodate them at a later date, until we get to the end of season in March 2010.
The courses are meant to be fun as well as a learning task, with everyone encouraged to enjoy the experience, sparking a strong desire to lay more hedges & increase their newly found skill for the future & the countryside.
Those interested should contact me Allan Rogers via email (ar251049@googlemail.com) or by telephone 01303-891542 providing name, full address & phone number.
Unfortunately, I cannot allow persons under the age of 18 to participate, mainly because of insurance, but that may change in the future
