Friends of Ridge Wood, Yate

The Friends of Ridge Wood are volunteers who help look after the Ridge Wood woodland and improve it for all who go there. 

Working with South Gloucestershire Council and site owners, Hanson Aggregates, the Friends undertake both practical conservation action and arrange popular community events for all, including hedge and wildlfower planting, Fungus Forays, Owl Prowls, Bat Walks and the hugely successful Festival of Light.
