Another course has flown by in Pembrokeshire!

Written by Tir Coed / Tuesday 13 August 2019


With four bridges built, new skills learnt and lots of connections made, this has been another most successful course. 11 people started the course with 7 of them achieving accreditation in Ancillary Structures, that's over 1000 hours in the woods!


During the course, the trainees worked together to build beautiful bridges and clear paths. With all of the materials supplied from local woodlands, the bridges look perfect in their setting. As well as develop skills, improving their wellbeing and meeting new people they have improved access around the woodland for other groups to enjoy.


On the last day, the team cooked up a delicious shared lunch on the camp fire, reflected on the last 12 weeks and looking to the future, thinking about what is next for each of them. Certificates were presented and we did one more lap of the peaceful new circular walk that has been developed during the course.

This course has given me purpose and the rewards are endless. Massive thank you to all who made it happen.
