'South Brent Steepers' is a lively group of SSB volunteers who are in their sixth year of hedge laying and collecting wood for fuel. New members, young and old, beginners as well as those with previous experience are invited to join them for fresh air, exercise, new skills, informal cooperation, input from a hedge-laying expert and a share of the wood with occasional hot soup. They provide tools, other necessary equipment and a wood-processing machine to cut the logs and store them under cover. Lifts to Penstave Copse are available from the Station Car Park at 9.50am. Steeping venues for this season are:
Sunday 12 November 2017 Penstave Copse: coppicing
Sunday 26 November 2017 Penstave Copse: coppicing
Sunday 10 December 2017 Railway Wood – coppicing, path clearance, woodland maintenance
