With a 13 acre woodland to maintain and a long list of improvement projects that are necessary to achieve our aims, the Trust has a considerable financial need. It is totally dependant on funding that is raised from a variety of sources, and voluntary labour from the community.  We have recently become a registered charity and are therefore eligible for Gift Aid.

The only regular income will come from Tarvin Parish Council which has agreed to make an annual contribution of £1000.



Each year we need insurance for public liability, employers liability for volunteers, use of equipment and our own equipment.

We pay rent for use of a meeting room and costs for printing, copying, stationery, postage etc.

There are costs for subscriptions and training

Mowing the woodland is currently costing about £150 a year for petrol.

We have purchased signs for use when we are grass, hedge or tree-cutting and also personal protection equipment for volunteers.


We have to pay the costs for fund-raising events in the form of materials, publicity etc.


We have a list of projects we are working through.  Wherever possible we are applying for grants but in some cases the grant covers only part of the cost or a grant is not available.  In those cases we will do what we can with the resources we have.

Grants have been, and will continue to be, sought for specific projects.  We acknowledge with gratitude the advice and guidance given by the Cheshire County Council (now Cheshire West and Cheshire) External Funding team.

All ongoing work in the woodland and that associated with the grant aided projects so far completed (apart from the chipping where the actual machine operators were hired) is done on a voluntary basis.  Without this the cost of projects would be prohibitive.  Over the last 10 years more than six thousand hours of voluntary effort have been expended.

See the relevant pages for details of grants received.

We have received nearly £10,000 in personal donations since we became a trust.  We continue to receive these and use the Gift Aid scheme to claim back the tax paid by donors.  We are also considering a suggestion from one or two residents that we start a regular giving scheme.


We will run events as and when necessary to continue creating awareness and raise funds.  These may be coffee mornings, plant sales or possibly activities in the woodland.
