We are delighted to announce that we now have to permission plant a new permanent woodland at our upcoming second purchase Stanley Lane! This incredibly exciting news comes as we are just one week away from purchase and is a huge step forward in our journey to transforming the site into a thriving woodland which will tackle the climate emergency and boost biodiversity.

Director Dave Wood says “We’re thrilled to have permission to plant a new permanent woodland.  Getting permission to plant is the biggest step in planting a new woodland, checking that we are planting the right tree in the right place in the right way.”

“We are so close to purchasing this exciting site and hope to have the funds to purchase it next week.  We have been bowled over by the financial support we have received from businesses and individuals who are making this new woodland possible. Thank you.”

There is still a huge amount of work to be done to create this new permanent woodland, so if you would like to get involved in its creation, we will be announcing tree planting days for Stanley Lane in the coming weeks. Stay tuned to our mailing list and our social media for the latest updates.  If you would like to make a financial contribution to support our project, you can also donate via our website or by emailing

We would like to give a big thank you to Great Western Community Forest for their support and to People’s Postcode Lottery, Wiltshire Council, Chippenham Town Council and the many generous businesses and individuals who have given financial support.
