Helpful organisations

Llais y Goedwig – the support group for Welsh community woodlands and one we are closely involved with.

Environment Wales – without their support and grants our woodland wouldn’t look half as good, but unfortunately this organisation is shortly to be dissolved.

Torfaen Voluntary Alliance – they have always been generous to us

Keep Wales Tidy  – they are always helpful with litter picking and grant support

Space Saviours – community based organisation that helps people to ‘turn an empty space into a great space’. Funded our roundhouse project.

Woodland Trust – over 200 trees have been provided by them

Natural Resources Wales – free advice on how to run a woodland

Forest Schools Wales helping the next generation of woodland lovers find their feet

The Conservation Volunteers really good when it comes to advice about tools and machinery

Other woodland groups

Ruperra Trust – 150 acres of woodland with spectacular views from an ancient monument in the middle

Llangattock Community Woodlands Group– a woodland group without a woodland but a great group of volunteers

Rowan Working Horses – responsible for a lot of tree clearing in the woodland

Local community groups

Cymdeithas Twmbarlwm Society a group who are doing a lot of good work to preserve and protect Twmbarlwm

Henllys local nature reserve a local group doing great work in Henllys

Llanyrafon Manor – an interesting historic building in Cwmbran – not just a new town. They have an outdoor maket on the last Sunday of the month and they make a lovely cup of tea as well!

Ancient Cwmbran Society – a group concerned with the archaeology of the area, particularly pre-medieval history

Gwent Ornithological Society for those interested in birds. They have done a number of surveys in the woodland

Gwent Wildlife Trust – a well established group supporting local wildlife and part of a national network.

Thanks to
