Colwick Woods is one of the cities hidden gems. This 50-hectare site of rich grassland and ancient woodland provides an oasis of tranquillity just one mile from the bustle of Nottingham city centre.
Colwick Woods was designated as a geological Site of Special Scientific Interest in 1995 and listed as a Local Nature Reserve in 2004. This site is particularly suitable for walking with a number of well maintained public rights of way paths spanning the woods. Colwick Woods also offers some panoramic views of the Trent Valley - as far as Belvoir Castle - and across the City.
There seems to be a general decline in the hedgehog population. A recent report
shows numbers have dropped by 25% in the last ten years. We would like to know
if anyone has seen any hedgehogs in the Bakersfield, Colwick Woods or Sneinton

We are looking for some volunteers, with a bit of time to spare not only to help us earlier in the day but also to help us with some new stalls we have planned, mainly children's games but also other stalls as well.
This will help us raise some money to do some of the jobs we have planned - restoring the ice house, improving paths etc. You won't need to give us your time all day, we want you to enjoy the gala too, but even an odd hour or two would help so we can perhaps plan a timetable of help. It would be much appreciated.
Please can you get in touch with Liz - 07721912382 or message us on facebook - Friends of Colwick Woods, if you can help.
