RANGERS have come up with the perfect way to shed the pounds and help nature.
The Forestry Commission has launched a woodland workout project in Kiveton Community Wood to help people stay in trim and improve wildlife habitats. Now a recruitment drive is underway to get adults to go green and sign up.
Hannah Darcel, Forestry Commission ranger, said: “There are loads of tasks that need doing, from removing ragwort, pruning, thinning birch and creating paths. It’s a great way to stay active and meet new friends and has a really positive impact on your sense of wellbeing.”
Fortnightly Thursday sessions take place from 27th September until the end of the year, from 9.30am-12.30pm.
Volunteers will be taught how to use a range of tools safely to improve the flourishing wood.
Hannah added: “People can work at their own pace and there’s a real sense of satisfaction in doing something positive for the environment.”
To join the woodland workout and for more information call Hannah on 07789 942599 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Refreshments will be provided.
