All those interested in promoting and sharing Forest School practice in Herefordshire are welcome to attend meetings. We are currently trying to alternate a more formal meeting to discuss and plan both business and group activities with a social networking and skill sharing event. However, we are open to ideas and suggestions!

The current group has evolved from the Forest Education Initiative (FEI) Cluster Group in Herefordshire as the FEI are no longer able to provide the support and funding previously available, or to host any web space. Hence the creation of this website which we hope will help us to achieve our agreed aims of raising awareness of the benefits of Forest School in Herefordshire whilst providing opportunities for practitioners to share ideas and practice, engage in networking and offer moral support. If you have an idea about items we could include on the website please get in touch and we will do our best to add it. We would love this site to be a celebration of all the wonderful Forest School practice that we know takes place in Herefordshire so please send us your news and photos (provided you have appropriate permissions for us to use them).


The minutes of our committee meetings are available to logged in members here
