Work In The Woods

What a busy winter and spring season it has been at Manch! Work teams and volunteers from a number of local, national and international businesses have been visiting Manch to help with maintenance and tree planting work throughout the season.

We have been working to plant trees into some areas of the older woods that have been badly damaged by storms in the last few years. Volunteers have done great work clearing undergrowth, finding and marking natural regeneration and planting new young trees where they are needed.

Visitors enjoyed guided walks of the woods, talks on the Manch Story and management of the estate, picnic lunches in the working yard and plenty of hard work planting trees in the fresh air. The volunteer days are managed and hosted by Nikki Keeling who does a brilliant job looking after the education centre at Manch and passing on her great knowledge and passion for the woods.

Photographs and more detail about the brilliant sponsors supporting the work at Manch coming soon.
