A dog

Over the years, the Chelmsford and District National Trust Supporter Group has made many gifts to Hatfield Forest, just 20 miles away from the City centre. One of our most recent gifts was a donation towards the purchase of Selena, a sheepdog at the Forest. Her handler, Ian Pease, is hoping to bring Selena to the Cramphorn Theatre on Wednesday, 6 March 2019, when he, and other members of the staff, will be talking about the Forest.

However, the best way to see her is literally in the field. David Simmonds is hoping to organise a self-drive visit to the Forest before the summer, probably a Thursday in May. The actual date and programme has to be finalised. If you would like to attend or find out more then please contact David Simmonds on tel 01245-250198 or djsimmonds@aol.com by 31st March.
