We did it

High-rise development threatens Burgess Park’s precious woodlands. An ecology report will help us assess the impact & challenge the plans.

Thank You All! - Week 2 - £2000 target reached including stretch goal! 2nd stretch goal & woodland trail launched.


Two weeks into our Crowdfunder and we have reached our stretch target of £2k. Thank you to everyone who has made a contribution! We are overwhelmed with the supportive messages.  

Our Crowdfunder runs to 4th June so we are going for a further stretch of £1k for a total £3k. This is a big stretch to double our first target.

The extra funds would:

  • Fund LWT to review the wildlife habits and ecology value of the Albany Road woodlands, the Surrey Canal Walk  and the Glengall Road area, and give ideas for how volunteers can help care for them.
  • Undertake a FOBP/LWT volunteer project later this year to identify, name and label examples of the tree species across the woodlands.

Woodland Trail


To celebrate our woodlands we have launched a mini trail across the Southampton Way woodlands. Look out for the signs; the QR codes take you through to different stories about these woodlands.
