Winter work parties 2023/2024

It’s that time of the year again – when George Green of WWT leads weekend work parties in Oakley Wood, allowing volunteers to assist with a variety of tasks. It’s a great way to feel you are contributing to the health of the wood, and it’s good for your health too.

This is George’s schedule with currently planned activities.

Sunday Volunteer Work Party Dates Task
October 22nd Sycamore Management
November 26th Woodland Ride Clearance
December 10th Coppicing
January 28th Coppicing
February 25th TBC

Please contact George (

Unless otherwise mentioned, we meet at the loading bay, off the B4100 Banbury Road at 10.00. George asks you not to arrive early as you risk backing up onto the busy road. He aims to arrive for around 09:50 to open the double gates. Activities normally run until around 13.00 but there’s no problem if you need to leave earlier.

I’ll try to post a reminder for each activity a little while before it takes place.
