Call For Semley Volunteers To Maintain Wildlife-Rich Village Woodlands

A recruitment drive is on for local volunteers who can help maintain six hectares of woodlands near Semley.

Oyster Coppice lies along a gentle slope, offering spectacular views over the Vale of Wardour. In the spring, it is home to wild daffodils. And you’ll see damsels and dragonflies in the summer. Rare dormice live there, too.

Debbie Carter’s been the volunteer warden overseeing the maintenance of the woodland on behalf of the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust for around 20 years. She tells Alfred how helpers are needed to ensure the wildlife thrives. You can call Debbie to volunteer on 01747 871311.
