The Friends of St Leonard’s Forest is a group of volunteers, working with Gatwick Greenspace, to restore and better manage the heathland in the forest. We meet only once a month, on a Sunday, but usually carry out plenty of work in that time.

We also believe that the moderate exercise, outdoors, helps us physically and mentally.

About us
Our objectives include helping to-

Ÿ
remove some of the unwanted Silver Birch and other plants from heathland areas
Ÿ
‘brash’ (see below) conifers on the edges of the clearings
Ÿ
totally eradicate Rhododendron Ponticum from within the forest by cutting down the plants and treating  remaining stumps with biocide
Ÿ
encourage heather to root and spread
Ÿ
encourage wildlife by supporting and improving their habitat.

(See Frequently Asked Questions for information on brashing and why ‘Rhodis’ are Public Enemy #1)

If you would like to join us, we want to hear from you by email or telephone - details below.
New members are always welcomed.
