HAWCs is a small group of local enthusiasts in East Berkshire who meet twice weekly  on Tuesdays and  Saturdays throughout the winter months to coppice woodland and lay hedges. It is an autonomous, self-funding group affiliated to the British Trust for Conservation Volunteers and to the British Hedgelaying Society.

HAWCs aims to...

  • Keep the ancient crafts of hedgelaying and coppicing alive
  • Conserve and maintain hedgerows, woodlands, and rights of way for the benefit of the public and the wildlife which depends on them
  • Educate the public in the principles and practice of nature conservation


All new volunteers and interested parties are welcome.
