Mar 30 SWOG Meeting – Pluckley, 11 May By Judith

SWOG member Alex Bienfait has arranged a demonstration of a Micro Arb Truc with a selection of handling attachments. SWOG members are invited to attend this demonstration and to explore Alex’s extensive wood, a mixture of Victorian plantation and semi-ancient woodland on Wealden clay. This is a free event and a great chance to take a close look at some useful log-moving machinery.
