As usual there will be a number change on the entrance gate from the 1st January. The wood will be used for a number of trials by the Southend Motorcycle Club. The two evening trials are on the 1st June and the 10th August and the three all day trials are on the 20th January, 17th February and the 6th October. The wood will be open as normal for most of the day for the evening trials. For the two all day trials the wood will be closed for practice. Any members wanting to ride in the trials may do so and will be signed up as special members for insurance purposes for the day. To ride they need to introduce themselves to Paul Nash on the day.
Please don’t forget to close the entrance gate behind you as this stops 90% of “illegals” from entering the wood.
Please remember to put your money in the box before going through the gate. We take a very dim view of people’s excuses as to why they have not done this!
Please also help us to keep the wood safe by letting us know of any dangers. We are conscious, in particular, of dead trees or obstacles considered dangerous.
Please remember that the stream at the bottom of the wood belongs to the neighbour and is therefore out of bounds.
We have had several mammoth litter picking operations over the past few years and the wood looks better for it. Please take your litter home with you.
We are happy for members to put up any information on the notice board.
