As Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) were unable to hold the Mildenhall Warren Lodge & Rex Graham Reserve Open Day on the late May Bank Holiday due to the COVID-19 restrictions, using the FoTF archive, a Virtual Open Day was held in it place.

The Spring/Summer 2020 Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) newsletter is out now, this special edition looks back at 25 years of FoTF. FoTF have also released a short thank you message as we celebrate 25 years of FoTF in these difficult times.

Notice to FoTF Volunteers:

In line with Forestry England's decision to suspend volunteering, Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) has cancelled all its volunteering activities from 18 March 2020 until further notice.
We hope that we can welcome you all back to your volunteering roles later in the year and, most importantly, that you all stay well.

Please be assured that we value both the volunteering that so many of you give to FoTF and your memberships.

Forest Discovery Day 2018 Photos

The "Forest at Work" Discovery Day saw almost 1,700 people visit the High Lodge site in Thetford Forest , many of whom had come to see the "Forest at Work" Discovery Day led by The Friends Of Thetford Forest (FoTF) in conjunction with the Forestry Commission.

There were forest machines in action, marquees dedicated to timber production and protection, deer management, archaeology, and space for children's crafts. The local TIMBER mountain bike group were also represented and hosted a display of cycles for the less able person and their impressive multi use machine for trail building and upkeep.

Lots of smiling faces, despite the chilly start to the day, and those that came be back from the deer spotting walk led by the Foresty Commission (FC) Ranger all commented on the very life like appearance of the deer silhouettes recently purchased by FC and in part funded by FoTF that are used for training.
