At the beginning of April 2016 a few FOGW volunteers together with Sheffield City Council ranger Chris Roberts erected a memorial bench in memory of Avril Critchley at the Scout Hut end of the wood.
A fitting tribute to a staunch supporter of our group.
Thanks also to Chris Roberts for providing the wood for the bench.
We have a pond!
For those of you who were involved in the work last Sunday (21 Feb 2016) we now have a pond in place! The rangers came last Tuesday and excavated the area. Many thanks to all who helped.
Below are a number of images courtesy of Derek Bateson and Stuart Davies showing what the group has achieved.
The pond seems to be holding water OK. Certainly the subsoil seemed to be a good mix of clay. Obviously it needs a few months to naturalise but so far so good.

A few photos taken of some "serious" Conservation work being done preparing the Wildflower Meadow by Chris Roberts and a number of enthusiastic members! Great work everyone!
