Our long term vision for Forget-me-not Woods is to create a biodiverse nature reserve that will contain woodland, hedgerows, ponds and meadow areas, rich in native plant species to benefit animals, plants and people.

  • PROTECT - We are passionate about wildlife and protecting our environment.

  • MAINTAIN - We strive to maintain existing habitats and establish new ones.

  • CREATE - We are creating woodlands that will benefit future generations.
