As a group that actively use Teazle Wood in Leatherhead for various events, we would like to highlight the need for donations of money needed to buy the last piece of wooldland for the community to use. This piece of woodland backs onto the Community Garden and is home to some wonderful newt ponds.
It is really important that we pull together to try and get the remaining funds.
Please help if you can. You WILL be doing something worthwhile :D
Why save Teazle Wood?
• It is the last sizable block of woodland in Leatherhead that forms a wildlife corridor between Bookham and Ashtead
• Is a proven educational resource for local people and schools
• Has therapeutic value for Combat Stress and Queen Elizabeth's Foundation for the disabled
• It is the home of many rare and endangered species including newts
£90,000 is still needed for the smaller piece of Teazle Wood. (If most of the people of Leatherhead donated £9, this amount would be met!)
Please send cheques now payable to:
"Friends of Teazle Wood" to Lucy Quinnell, Rowhurst Forge, Oxshott Rd, Leatherhead, Surrey KT22 0EN.
Please include name: address, telephone number, email & whether you would like to remain anonymous or whether you are happy to be named (amounts will not be disclosed unless you'd like. Receipts will be given)
