Planting is now complete on the new woodland in the Southfield at Fairlands, after around 4,000 trees were planted in January and February with help from the local community, including ten schools, residents, volunteers, council officers and Councillors.

Residents were asked to suggest names for the new woodland, and Councillors then shortlisted ten names:

  • Fairlands Forest
  • Kings Wood
  • Valley Wood
  • Coronation Wood
  • Fairlane Wood
  • Queen Elizabeth Wood
  • Heartland Wood
  • Attenborough Wood
  • Fox Wood
  • Strong Oak Wood

Councillor Simon Speller, Portfolio Holder for Environment and Climate Change, said:

“The planting of the new woodland was a wonderful effort by our young people and the community, and many thanks to all of you who took part. Now it’s time for everybody to vote for your favourite name.

“We will hold an event to formally name the woodland later in the summer.”
