South Brent Steepers and woodfuel from hedges.

'South Brent Steepers' is a lively group of SSB volunteers who are in their sixth year of hedge laying and collecting wood for fuel. New members, young and old, beginners as well as those with previous experience are invited to join them for fresh air, exercise, new skills, informal cooperation, input from a hedge-laying expert and a share of the wood with occasional hot soup. They provide tools, other necessary equipment and a wood-processing machine to cut the logs and store them under cover. Lifts are available from the Station Car Park at 9.50am. Steeping venues are:

Sunday 10 December 2017   Railway Wood – coppicing, path clearance, woodland maintenance

Sunday 24 December 2017   Penstave Copse: coppicing
