Join Us Now

Friends of Colwick Woods volunteer group was formed by local residents in April 2004, and we work closely with Nottingham City Council.

We are registered with BTCV and Affiliated with B.A.N.C.A. The aim of the group is to protect, enhance and promote Colwick Woods as an important local resource for the benefit of the community and its natural habitat. We have "hands on" days in the woods by way of litter-picks, bulb planting and woodland projects.
We are currently applying for grants to improve the woods, also creating local community interest by way of informative talks.

Every member makes us more effective in safe guarding and managing the woods - see our recent achievements below. We gain more respect from the council and funding organisations. We are also able to better influence the planning system. You become insured at our events.

You are very welcome to come along to our meetings on the 1st Monday of each month at B.A.N.C.A., 312 Sneinton Dale commencing 7 p.m. New ideas and suggestions concerning the improvement of the woods are always welcome.

How to Join

Cost of membership only £2.00 per person per year, or £5.00 for family membership.
Payments can be given to Angela at Angela's Hairdressers on Greenwood Road.
