January 2013, snowy, cold but bright. A group of neighbours looking out over the bare but beautiful woods wondered allowed, wouldn't it be a good idea to take more care of our rather special local green space. Names were being exchanged, some knew it as Bluebell Wood, others as The Meadow and Field, the Local Authority named it as Crimicar lane Open Space, the old maps as Gilcrest Wood.


By the spring, with the support of Sheffield City Council, a public meeting of 30 people in Fullwood Chapel gave a full local mandate to initiating a voluntry Friends Group to take care of the Woods and Meadow.


This is your chance to join in and enjoy taking caring of our wild space, its plants and wildlife. Join us in planting, digging, clearing, surveying plants, bird and wildlife both  little and large, and the satisfaction of a working together for a good thing.

Our aim is ​to offer some sympathetic care, conserve and encourage natural fauna and flora and generally improve the wild space of Glicrest Wood and Meadow

Nest find: we checked and cleared all the bird boxes we put up in 2014, and almost 50% of the 10 boxes had seen action. Chris has refurbished the boxes and weve just reset them.
