Friends of Thetford Forest is delighted to announce an award of £1107 from the Postcode Neighbourhood Trust to purchase equipment to help with conservation and archaeology tasks. Having applied for funding in August, it is only now that we can publicise our success.
The Postcode Neighbourhood Trust is a grant-giving charity funded entirely by players of People's Postcode Lottery. Our grant came from money allocated to help voluntary groups in this year's challenging circumstances.

The latest FoTF Newsletter (Autumn/Winter 2020) is out now. The new look newsletter can be viewed here.

Save Our Forests Campaign

Whilst the original 2010 plans for a complete sale of the Public Forest Estate have been put on hold, as a direct result of the countrywide campaign against such a proposal, the Government appointed a 'Panel of Experts' to review all aspects of the Estate.

On January 31st 2013 the Government announced its official response to the Independent Panel on Forestry's (IPF) Final Report on the future of England's Woods and Forests. Friends of Thetford Forest (FoTF) issued a short response to the Government official response to the Final Report on the future of England's Woods and Forests. You can view the full FoTF response to the Final Report by clicking here.

Throughout the campaign, from its inception when the Government first announced the planned sale of the Public Forest Estate to the reversal of that decision and the commissioning of the 'Panel of Experts', to the subsequent Governement response, the Friends of Thetford Forest have campaigned to ensure FoTF, and FoTF members, views were known.

FoTF have issued campaign updates via FoTF newsletters, as well as to the FoTF website, so that members were aware of the recent announcements and the work the Friends were undertaking in this area.
