A walk in the woods is one of life’s simple pleasures – and something that we often take for granted. But the truth is that the government is planning a massive sell off of our national forests. If we don’t do something soon, we could lose our forests for good. They could be sold and fenced off, run down, logged or turned into golf courses.
And once they’re gone, they’re gone forever.
We’re lucky enough to have our own woods at Bosinver. It’s a great place to walk, jog, spot wildlife or just sit and think. All the kids who come to stay here say it’s one of the best parts of their holiday. The woods give them the freedom to explore and have their own adventures.
Our Wild Kids club gives children and their families the chance to join in with guidedBuilding a den; Wild Kids at Bosinver activities in the woods like den building, toasting marshmallows on a campfire and discovering the woodland wildlife. It’s their chance to get up close and personal with nature – something that very few children have the opportunity to do on a regular basis.
One of the woods the government is planning to sell off is right on our doorstep – Cardinham, near Bodmin. It’s a beautiful mixed woodland, popular with local dog walkers, cyclists and horseriders. If it’s sold, people in Cornwall and visitors from all around the country will lose this wonderful recreational space. We can’t let them do this.
Support for the ‘Save Our Forests’ campaign is growing. We’ve signed the petition to save our forests, and we urge you to do the same. Let’s make the government rethink their plans.
