During this Coronavirus outbreak and the need to self isolate but also take exercise we’re pleased to see that  some of our visitors are spending time in and enjoying the woods but you need to be aware of the dangers of having fires or barbeques. Fire can spread very quickly and get out of control. It is then very difficult to put out and will do enormous damage to the woodland and potentially destroy large areas.

Croydon Council (who own the woods) are very unhappy with unauthorised fires, The Friends of Littleheath Woods work hard to make and keep the woodland area a pleasant place to visit.

With thanks.
