Who Are the Sherwood Forest Trust?
The Sherwood Forest Trust are a small local charity with big ambitions. They focus on three things: conservation, heritage and community. They want to help preserve and promote all things Sherwood; its wood and heath; its history, its nature, its culture, and the people who make it special.
Robin Hood Country
By Sherwood Forest they don’t just mean the country park, or the Sherwood National Nature Reserve. They work across the whole wide area that was formerly the Royal Hunting Forest of Sherwood — the land once roamed by Robin Hood, stretching from Nottingham north to Worksop, and from Mansfield in the west to Laxton village in the east.
What Do They Do?
They are not a campaign or political group. Nor are they a branch of any larger national charity. They carry out practical projects in Nottinghamshire — in and around our fabulous Forest. From tree planting with schools, to hosting students, to funding fun family events like the Major Oak Woodland Festival, their Edwinstowe office is always buzzing with projects. They’re constantly looking for creative ways to conserve and celebrate Robin Hood’s legendary home. And they need your help.
Keep Them On Track!
They’re drawing up their charity’s plans for the next few years. But they want to ‘keep it real’ — concentrating on projects that local people really want, and will support.
How You Can Help
There’s a five-minute online questionnaire on their website, www.sherwoodforesttrust.org.uk. On the website, click the ‘About Us’ tab, choose ‘Projects’ from the dropdown menu, then click on ‘Sherwood Forest Survey’.
