Get that warm, fuzzy feeling

Submitted by on May 2, 2017 – 3:25 pmNo Comment

We think that what we’ve achieved here in the Forest of Marston Vale is really worth shouting about. Planting over 1.5 million trees is a big achievement, and we wouldn’t have been able to do it without the support and donations from thousands of people over the course of the past 25 years (or all of the locals who were willing to get their wellies on and come out to help us physically plant them)!

One of the things we’re most proud of is our Forest Centre – a free, wheelchair and buggy-accessible Park with great facilities, right in the heart of the Forest with free parking and free access to 8km of surfaced trails. You don’t get that kind of free facility everywhere, and we always get a warm, fuzzy feeling when local residents tell us how much they love visiting us, or when newbies come along in the holidays and wish they’d known about us sooner. But as a charity, in order for us to continue to provide our facilties free of charge in the future, we rely heavily on donations from the users of the Forest Centre & Millennium Country Park.

So next time you are at the Forest Centre and see one of our brightly coloured donation posts, please put in £1 or whatever change you can spare – it all goes towards keeping pthe Forest Centre & Millennium Country Park going and the Forest of Marston Vale growing!
