Wenhaston Commons and Footpaths
Wenhaston is fortunate to have five Commons in and around the village. These are important fragments of ancient lowland heath known as Suffolk Sandlings, one of Britain’s most threatened habitats. The Wenhaston Commons Group has for many years managed the Commons in the interests of conservation and in 2012 adopted a 10-year plan called 'Caring for the Commons'. New residents who may be interested are encouraged to join our regular working parties, the dates of which are advertised in advance and in the monthly Wenhaston Warbler. There are also walks, talks and information about the Commons and a regular newsletter called 'The Silver Studded Blue'. The Commons Group has a committee which is nominated from members at an annual AGM, and meets as a Group at least twice a year. For more information please contact the Secretary Ann Follows 01502 478324 firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a good network of clearly marked footpaths in and around Wenhaston.
The Footpath Group walks on the first and third Tuesdays of the month. One is a half-day walk, one further afield with a pub lunch. All welcome. Contact Heather Phillips, 01502 478545 or Heather Hammond 01502 478602.
