Securing a long term sustainable future for our local woodlands in Corby has always been a challenge. Funding was originally secured through the Homes & Communities Agency (HCA) and generous grant support from the Forestry Commission together with other sponsorship deals has meant that the Corby Woodlands Project has been able to bring forward the first phases of work, which have seen the project raise its profile to a national exemplar. Some of the key achievements have been a fantastic engagement with local volunteers which have led to new employment opportunities, securing the nationally recognised Green Flag and Green Apple awards and being recognised by the Royal Forestry Society in their Excellence in Forestry Awards for Community Forestry. Please visit Hazel and Thoroughsale Woods for more information.
The shop will sell products made from timber extracted from the local woodlands. Products available include netted seasoned firewood and kindling, rural craft products, environmental education products and wildlife books. All profit generated will be spent on protecting and conserving our local woodlands and green spaces in the long term.
The shop could not open without the support of local volunteers and further volunteers are needed. There are no commitments, we are asking for as much time as you are able to give. There are so many benefits from being a volunteer and full training will be provided.
