NEWS FROM THE GALLOWSFIELD WOOD WORKING GROUP  


 This winter (probably December) we will be doing tree thinning in the wood. This is the second phase of a project initially planned by Suffolk County Council before the Parish took over the ownership of the wood.
The aim of the work is to introduce more light and space into the wood, making it easier for trees to grow and also a better environment for a broader range of plants and wildlife. However, as we know from the last time such work was done, this will mean that parts of the wood will appear somewhat devastated immediately after the work. But we also know that it will return to a more natural looking state quite quickly, once regrowth occurs in the spring. The team doing the work will also be leaving some of the brushwood on the ground, which some may see as being untidy, but this is done deliberately to create habitats for wildlife.
The work will be done by experienced contractors, who carried out the first phase of the project, and will also be monitored by Suffolk County Council's woodland advisor.
The work should only take a few days and we will put notices up in advance once the contractors have confirmed a date. We hope that users of the wood won't be too disturbed by this.

 URGENT PLEA

Littering of Bridleway/Footpath up to the old A14

 

After years of negotiations and hard work a bridleway/footpath was opened to provide a way for villagers, on foot, bicycles or horseback, to avoid a dangerous piece of road on the exit of Haughley up to the old A14, which has proved to be very popular.

Some of the many attendees at the Haughley Neighbourhood Plan Drop In Event also expressed a wish for a safe footpath to link with the new path and for the local footpaths network to be kept open.

Unfortunately it would appear that a minority are ruining things for everyone else by littering the new bridleway/footpath with metal cans, glass bottles, coffee containers and plastic bottles etc., thrown on the path and neighbouring road verge (which is a nature reserve).

This litter is a danger to people, their children, and pets, to horses and ponies and their riders, and to the local wildlife. The Parish Council would ask that users take their rubbish home, for the benefit and safety of others, on this and other paths in the area.

PLEASE HELP TO KEEP THIS VALUABLE ASSET SAFE AND USEABLE FOR EVERYBODY - THANK YOU
