The history of the spinney

The uses of ash wood


Roughmoor Spinney

In 1997 Roughmoor Spinney was given to Whilton Parish as a Millennium Gift by Griff and Joan Davies of Roughmoor Grounds.  The Spinney has been open to the public since 2000, and has been developed, maintained and managed by a Management Group of volunteers from the parish.

Latest News

This winter has been alternatively wet and cold, and the planned work party in December was cancelled because of deep snow.  There is maintenance work to be done, including in the pond area, and we are hoping to be able to start on this is in April.  If you would like to help or are interested in finding out more, please contact Roy Haynes (07879 861673) or Maurice Clements (842006), who will be happy to provide details.

We are sorry to announce that from the summer our Secretary Linda Tibbs will be retiring.  We thank Linda for all she has done.  We shall now require a new Secretary from June:  there are approximately 3 meetings per year and the job entails minute taking and agenda/information distribution.  If you are interested in volunteering for this job, please contact Janet Bowers (842851).
