Friends of Stara Woods

Membership of the Friends of Stara Woods is open to all – and joining us is vital for the preservation and care of this beautiful place.  Many who regularly walk in the woods like to join the Friends so they feel they are helping to look after this priceless community asset.

We ask Friends to set up an annual direct debit to the Friends of Stara Woods, the amount at their own discretion, though we would respectfully suggest an annual fee of £15 for adults, £10 for pensioners and £8 for children and the unwaged.

In return Friends receive the quarterly newsletter and news of all events taking place in the woods. Friends can also join our social events and working parties, which take place on the first Saturday of each month and are a great chance to enjoy the woods and the fresh air with like-minded people! They also enjoy events such as February’s dormouse day, when we built nesting boxes for dormice.

Friends also, of course, enjoy the satisfaction of contributing to the care of Stara Woods.

To join, please e-mail Anne Hughes at or call her on 01579 362068 – Anne will e-mail or post you an application form and bank mandate.

Thank you for your interest and support.
