New Information Board in Joel Park

The Holt Copse Conservation Volunteers have just installed a new information board adjacent to the playground in Joel Park. This board will be used to display colourful and educational wildlife posters which will be updated with content relevant to the season. Currently displaying woodland wild flowers and mini-beast identification.

Footpath Work in Holt Copse

The Holt Copse Conservation Volunteers have now completed a second section of footpath renovation in Holt Copse. The project was begun last year with 80 metres of path being laid along the muddy main route through The Copse. Now the path has been extended by a further 75 metres, improving access for local residents and visitors.


Compacting the new footpath


During the exercise around twenty tons of road planings were shifted in order to construct the footpath surface. This would not have been possible without the kind loan of a mini-digger and dumper truck for the day by Rapid Hire Centres of Wokingham. The Volunteers certainly enjoyed playing with their ‘big boys toys’!
