When, where and what?

Any thoughts? Where would you like the next meeting to be held, which month and any ideas for topics?

thanks!

How about getting somebody from The Woodland Trust to talk about their plans for High Brede Wood, or their "Ancient Tree Hunt" project.

How about someone to talk about money making ideas from the woods?

How about someone from the tax office to give us the low down on what our liabilities are re: VAT on stuff we produce. For example: do we have to register for VAT if we make and sell ourown charcoal, post and rail materials etc even if we don't meet the threshhold. We have not been able to find out a definitive answer.


Having said this if the meeting is over in Ashford we might not be able to make it all that way over - the pack ponies (and the wifes donkey) are very slow these days and we might have to set off a week beforehand!!!!

Good ideas, keep them coming!

Darren, I think you missed on one money making ideas, we will still incorporate that at some point again, but in the meantime WoodNet are developing a producer group you might be interested in.

email Ruth

[email protected] to find out more.


Tax and ancient trees, I am sure we can do these...

and Greyman, you guys can always camp in our wood the night before ;-) we can't have a meeting without you!
