Fundraising for new Bird Barn

Hello my name is Steve Elwood , I am the Chairman of The Boston Woods Trust.

On 23rd June 2024 I am cycling 100 miles (in one day!) the route will take me through much of Lincolnshire.

The route.......


Please help me "Make the dream a reality" by sponsoring me.


I'm raising money to build a barn in the Boston Woods Trust's latest development , Dion's Wood Nature Reserve. The barn will have nest sites of several different species - such as the iconic Barn owl and the welcome summer visitors, swallows and swifts.

As old farm buildings disappear there are increasing shortages of nest sites. This barn aims to help to alleviate this situation.

Every donation will help towards increasing biodiversity in our new reserve and surroundings.

As more species are attracted to the reserve you will be both helping nature, and the enjoyment of our visitors.


Thank you in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to me.

Get involved

This is a community project, get involved and make it yours


​Join our team of volunteers and get involved with the maintenance and development of the woods, from planting young trees, mulching, pruning and planting wild flowers to litter picking and seat cleaning. 

Volunteers benefit from exercise in the fresh air and the company of others. No experience is necessary with tasks for all abilities and no committment on time. We have an Easy Crew, mainly for the girls - of any age.

To find out more please contact Steve & Claire  on 01205 723954, Adrian on 01205 365949 or come and have a chat with the current volunteers.
