Hedge-laying training days, Llanafan

Date(s) - 11 Jan 2013
9:30 AM - 4:30 PM

Local woodsman Bob Shaw will be leading 4 hedge-laying training days on  11/12 January 2013 and 18/19 January 2013 in Llanafan (one of  our ‘Wildlife Where you Live’ projects, in conjunction with Pentir Pumlumon).

You will learn the benefits and techniques of hedgerow management including singling and high pruning as well as laying.

There is no cost, but places are limited so booking is required – you must be able to attend for at least 2 full days, and must also have some previous practical outdoor experience (not necessarily hedge-laying).

A  deposit of £25 is required in order to secure your booking. This will be refunded following your attendance at the workshop.

You will need to bring outdoor clothes and waterproofs, and a packed lunch. Hot drinks will be provided.


This event is fully booked.

      Hi Suzanne. I’ve provisionally booked a place for you on 12th and 19th Jan, and sent you an email with details about paying the deposit. Thanks for your interest in this workshop.

    Hi Mara, I would like to come on the course on both Sundays but I will need to get away by 15.00 to get back for the animals before it gets dark as L is working. I can make an extra day on a Saturday to make up the time if need be. Also if you are getting fully booked then I can stand aside as I do understand that I can’t commit to a full days work. Thank you. Kind regards Martin

      Hi Martin, No one is in work today and it is my colleague Aline who is co-ordinating the Llanafan events. She should be back in the office later this week and I’ll ask her to respond to you then. Happy New Year to you and Linda. Mara 🙂

      Hi Martin, apologies for the delay in responding. Unfortunately the hedge-laying workshop is full on all 4 days, however I will put your name down as a reserve for the 2 Sundays in case a place becomes available. Thank you for your interest. Aline

    I was wondering if you have had any cancellations for the Hedgelaying course running Jan 11th thru 19th 2013.

      Hi Dai,
      I’ve filled all cancellations for 11 and 12, but I’ll put you on our reserve list in case anyone cancels for the 18 and 19. Could you please email me a contact number to info@denmarkfarm.org.uk. I can also keep your details on file and let you know of anything similar in future – if you are happy for me to do this?
