Log Bank growing strong in Wooler
Since starting a pilot scheme around July of this year, the Northumberland Log Bank (Wooler) has been steadily growing. The Trustees and volunteers have been developing their skills, including the safe use of chainsaws.
Having also expanded their links with the local community, Log Bank (Wooler) has now gathered and prepared a store of logs ready for delivery this winter.
What’s it all about?
The Log Bank is not open to the public. Rather, the aim is to deliver seasoned wood fuel logs to people who have difficulty obtaining or handling logs due to financial constraints, poor health, age or isolation.

Would you like to help?
Can you spare a few hours a week to help collect, prepare and deliver logs?
We are looking for volunteers in the Wooler area, especially those with appropriate skills or anyone interested in undergoing training: developing skills and knowledge around safeguarding are also essential.
The Northumberland Log Bank is still just a sapling, but it would not have sprouted without the support of the following individuals and organisations. A huge thank you!Kate Thick (Founding Trustee), Robbie Burn (Trustee) & Grace Murray (Trustee)
