What a fabulous day in Park Wood (London Road, Waterlooville)  167 people turned out to hunt for eggs in the wood.  Families thoroughly enjoyed themselves and a big thank you must go to The Friends of Park Wood for organising it so well, Chlaires Hairdresser (Highfield Avenue) for selling tickets and of course Aldi for donating the Easter eggs.

The Friends apologised for the muddy paths which caused problems for those with pushchairs and of course it will be a problem for those with wheelchairs.  Sadly the Friends are no longer allowed to maintain the paths which they have done for 18 years as the Woodland Trust have stopped them.  Such a shame as they will only deteriorate further.   The Woodland Trust say they will bring in Woodland Trust volunteers to improve the paths, twice a year, if they deem it necessary.  (The Friends have been told they are not Woodland Trust volunteers, only a group working under their auspices!?)

 If you feel it is a shame that this wood will not be so easily accessible to the community you can always make your thoughts known to the Woodland Trust (Kerry Clarke, Head of Volunteering and Engagement   -
