We now have a ten minute film of the wood and our activities. We already had a two minute version which was made by two young film-makers for the Sheffield Docfest. They made the film at their own expense with our help and it made the final in it's category and was very well received. The grant money from the Woodland Trust enabled us to pay their expenses (£100) to produce a longer version which contains many tree stories. Please see link:
