Blyth Woods is a Charitable Incorporated Organisation and is registered with the Charity Commission, registration number 1172343.
The trustees are:

John Rolfe (Friends, website)
The day-to-day management of Blyth Woods is carried out by a steering group. All the trustees are members of the steering group along with Serena Inskip. We meet every six weeks or so to review and to plan the way forward and we hold an AGM that was in the autumn but which we are moving to the spring.
This is a community project and so we invite people to join us at work parties, celebrations and training.
For those who support the idea but who are not able to turn up at events we have a “Friends” Scheme.
The skills and interests of the group are various but we all share a love of the local, natural environment.
At the moment our contact with the youth of the community is mainly through the school activities and some family participation but we hope we will be able to develop activities that involve more young people. If you have any ideas, please contact us to let us know.
