WE ARE A GROUP OF CURRENTLY TWELVE MEMBERS WHO HAVE A SHARED INTEREST IN OUR LOCAL ENVIROMENT. DURING THE WINTER MONTHS WE SPEND A LOT OF TIME PLANTING TREES AND SOMETIMES HEDGES IN THE SURROUNDING COUNTRYSIDE WITH THE CO-OPERATION OF THE LOCAL LANDOWNERS. RECENTLY WE BOUGHT FOUR ACRES OF LAND AT THE END OF WATER LANE AND WITH THE HELP OF THE SCOUTS AND LOCAL PEOPLE WE CREATED TICKHILLS FIRST PUBLIC WOOD, WHICH WE CALLED JUBILEE WOOD.WE GROW MOST OF OUR OWN TREES AND HAVE A TREE NURSERY AT STONEY BRIGG FARM. DURING THE SUMMER MONTHS WE ENJOY OUTINGS TO NATURE RESERVES AND VISITS TO SUCH PLACES AS HATFIELD MOORS WHICH ARE NOT YET OPEN TO THE PUBLIC.

We have ties with the local schools who plant seeds and grow them for us as part of a school project. We are very keen to involve the young and encourage them at every opportunity. The scouts have worked with us on projects such as Jubilee wood and Owl boxes and both parties have benefited and had a lot of fun. Over the years we have built up a good relationship with the local farmers, who in turn have not only let us plant on their land, but have also helped out too. We have found that as the environment has become a more mainstream issue we are being contacted and encouraged by all areas of society and even local government.
To summarise we aim to improve Tickhill’s countryside and try and have a bit of fun doing it and there’s no doubt it’s certainly rewarding.
