A volunteer group formed in 2004 and working with Nottingham City Council to improve and protect the woods

Join us

The Friends of Colwick Woods (FOCW) is a not-for-profit organization whose aim is to protect, enhance and promote the woods for people and for wildlife.

Objectives include the conservation of the wildlife of the woods, the protection and enhancement of the landscape, documentation of the history of the woods, the promotion of public and educational use, and community involvement.

The Friends of Colwick Woods needs the support that the membership of local people gives. Your fees cover our insurance costs (for volunteer activities in the woods), running the website, and occasional speaker’s fees.

Membership can be as active as you wish. You may just want to be associated with the aims of the group or you may wish to take a more active role in the various activities of the group.

Membership Fees

From 2021, membership fees are £3.00 per adult (over 16 years of age) per year. We have removed the option for family membership so any children are free. Any additional donations are always welcome. Fees can be paid by cash, cheque (payable to The Friends of Colwick Woods) and bank transfer.
