Spurrells Wood was opened up for the Lester Explorer Scouts Unit (Sheringham and Cromer) leader to instruct his team in hazel coppicing. This goes towards their environment management awards/badges. Felbeck Trust volunteers were present to learn as well, and we are now proficient in three types of cuts made to produce the perfect coppiced hazel stump!!
A few days later a volunteer work party put our coppicing skills to the test and tackled a few more hazels. We also checked the nest boxes for the coming nesting season, cleared paths and checked signs. Thanks again to the tremendous band of volunteers.
