Friends of George Street Woods
Everyone needs a friend, especially those friends in danger of being lost to us, those that need support and nuture of the community at large.
This is the aim of FOGSW - to ensure George Street Woods remains a place for the community to play, relax, research and pass the time in.
We are a group of users of this woods that endeavour to maintain the George Street Woods in it current state and let nature takes it course in allowing the woods to flourish.
