It’s Spring – Newsletter 140

The Vernal Equinox has arrived and as I write, the lengths of day and night are equal. Tomorrow the day will be longer than the night and the wood is waking up fast. It may feel chilly but the sun brings hope and joy. Listen to the birds! Their songs grow longer and more varied with every passing day.

Happy Solstice – Newsletter 139

On bright December days, the wood is a delightful place to spend time. When the trees are bare, the sun illuminates the vibrant colours of ferns, mosses and fallen leaves. We notice the contrast of pale lichens and bright spots of fungi on fallen twigs against the dark damp ground.

November in the Wood – Newsletter 138

It’s been years since I walked through the wood at night. On Bonfire Night it was silent apart from a burst of harsh bird-sound, you couldn’t call it song. Ravens, perhaps? We’ve seen them flying in the day-time. Leafless trees stood still, tall black skeletons under a starry sky; it seemed as though the only creatures in motion were my little dog Baskerville and me.

Public Meeting – 29th September 2023

You are invited to a Public Meeting at Hen Ysgol Bodorgan Community Centre, Ynys Môn LL62 5AB on Friday 29 September at 7pm. The Eternal Forest Trust would like to share its ideas about creating a natural burial ground on Anglesey. It would be part woodland and part wildflower meadow, open to everyone.
Come and chat over tea and biscuits.


September in the Wood – Newsletter 137

Today was golden, beautiful.  The wood was the best place to be. I’m so glad it’s been raining! The fungi had all but disappeared after the recent hot weather and I was worried that there would be nothing to find next Sunday, when Charles Aron is coming to the wood to teach us about them.

The Eternal Forest at the Eisteddfod 5-12th August

It’s Eisteddfod time again, and never again will it be this close to our burial ground! Are you a Welsh learner or speaker who can help run our stall on the maes? Or help at the burial ground giving out leaflets? Any time from August 5th – 12th.

Please come to support the wood you love! Message us here or phone our office – 01758 612006. THANK YOU!

Looking For a Site on Anglesey to Create a New Burial Ground

We’re a charity with a mission to create more woodland burial grounds. Can you help us do this? Do you own any land on Anglesey? Do you know of any small plots of land for sale there? (about 2 acres) – with good road access? We have looked carefully at one possible site, but it is very expensive. To keep our costs down we are still looking.
