Jan 29 Meeting at Marston Vale – 2nd March 2014 By Judith

Marston Thrift is a community ASNW woodland on the borders of Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire. It has been worked by a dedicated group of volunteers since 1973 and it is thanks to them that the woodland has been brought back into management and now thrives. The Wardens of Marston Thrift, Clive and Angela Bucknall, have kindly offered to show SWOG members around the wood to demonstrate what they have achieved over the years.

Clive and Angela lead a working party that meets on the first Sunday of every month between October and March – and they are keen for more help.

The timetable for the day is as follows:
11.00 am meet at Marston Thrift car park. Guided walk through the wood with Clive and Angela.
12pm Meet the volunteers for a chat and coffee. After this, members might like to join the working party or are free to explore the wood further.
1.00 pm Drive to Marston Vale Forest Centre for lunch and a talk about the regeneration of the Forest of Marston Vale.
