The Friends of Selsdon Wood are volunteers helping to ensure that Selsdon Wood is maintained for the benefit of the flora and fauna, and for the enjoyment of the public. They are the Council's eyes and ears - reporting problems that occur.

The Friends regularly hold informative walks,
carry out conservation and restorative work and monitor wildlife in Selsdon Wood.

Follow our sign-posted walks with QR matrix barcoded information - red (1.6m) & green (3m).

The Friends need your membership now that Council funding for FSW work and Selsdon Wood is reduced!

Membership of the Friends expresses your belief in, and support for, the work we do.The Friends understand that not everyone can take part in maintenance work or attend meetings but your membership encourages those that do.

A large membership encourages supportive organisations to give us grants and donations. If you can help us practically,
it will be much appreciated.
