FOLLOWING a successful first woodland training course, people are being invited to sign up for another free training course.

Tir Coed will be running a second two-day-a-week course run over 12 weeks in private woodland, near Bethlehem, north of Haverfordwest, as part of a year-long series of training and activity sessions in Pembrokeshire being organised by Tir Coed.

The course starts on September 18 and will run on Mondays and Tuesdays and it will be possible to achieve two units of level 1 Agored Cymru accreditation in sustainable woodland management.

Advance booking is essential and priority will be given to people out of work or who may need some additional support. Help is available with transport and care costs to those who need it.

If you or someone you know may be interested in taking part in the training course or just want more information get in touch as soon as possible with the Pembrokeshire coordinators (Lowri) or (Jim) or give Tir Coed a call on 01970 636909.

Tir Coed, a charity body, also organises bespoke activity sessions for groups of people who want to enjoy the natural environment and the woodland. Sessions provide various activities such as greenwood craft, foraging and conservation.

Activity sessions are free, open to groups of all ages and ability, and are particularly aimed at groups who provide support services. If you are interested in a group activity session, get in touch with Tir Coed.

All of the activities undertaken during Tir Coed projects are designed to improve the health and accessibility of the woodland, creating a community resource that can be enjoyed by all, long after the Tir Coed projects have finished.

This project is funded through LEADER, part of the Welsh Government Rural Communities – Rural Development Programme, financed by the Welsh Government and European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development (EAFRD), or Arwain Sir Benfro can be found at
