The Friends of Bashfordsland Wood & Oakfield Glen made charcoal and natural art to celebrate the newly launched Charter for Trees.

Their work will be part of a final piece made up from groups across the UK & Ireland.

The Charter for Trees, Woods and People sets out the principles for a society in which people and trees can stand stronger together.

The Friends Of group meet once a month, on the second Saturday of each month from 10am-1pm, meeting at Oakfield Community Centre.

The group complete a wide range of practical tasks from pond and tree maintenance to wildlife surveys. New volunteers are always welcome.
