    Just around the corner from me , and it sounds interesting but ...

    £30 for what, If you don't mind me asking?
    Not being facetious just curious...

    I love the Savernake , and on that picture looks like West Woods to me ...

    Sorry no Facebook here .

    Thanks Mesquite.
    We have a fixed cost per person agreement with the landowner. Unfortunately there are many other pastimes (ie shooting) that could earn the landowner a lot more that we are competing with for continued access.

    The flip side is that we have private access to 15 acres of beautiful woodland.

    There is a parachute up, composting loo, and i bring the group camp equipment kettle, dutch ovens, skillets etc as needed.

    Plus the fact that you get to spend a very nice weekend with some good people. I'm just sorry I can't make it. Hope it goes well Andy!

    If you're able to make it, it would be great to meet you. I know you said you don't use Facebook, so just drop me a PM if you fancy coming. Should be able 6-8 others coming at the moment.

    We'll be processing a fallen birch tree for craft produce during the weekend and I'll be giving some spoon/utensil carving guidance to those interested in partaking.

    All the best.
    Andy

    Hi andyn,
    Really wish I could make this one as I love the Savernake & surrounding area, but will be driving down to Cornwall on the 21st :(
    If you have any more planned for this year, I would love to know about them !
    Wishing everyone a great weekend.
    Simon
