As many will be aware Letham Woodland group hopes to secure a community buy out of Letham Wood. The advantages are that by bringing the wood into community ownership, we can safeguard it (prevent it from being clear felled), ensure that it is managed properly to encourage a diverse range of wildlife, develop the wood as a community resource/ recreational area and maintain safe and proper access for walkers . There is no downside to this, money will not be taken from other community projects and nobody will be billed anything or held liable for the wood.
Part of the funding criteria is that the Group can show a level of community support for the project- hence the consultation.

At the end of this process the group will be hosting a coffee morning in Letham Village Hall on Saturday 26 June from 10am-12pm to share their findings and ideas.
