Keep Calm & Chop Logs!
Norfolk Wood Warm – Community Woodfuel Club
For all those who use logs on their fires and stoves during the winter we have a new community interest company to provide wood fuel on a not-for-profit basis.
Norfolk Wood Warm CIC
How does it work?
Woodfuel is obtained in bulk, seasoned and processed, mainly by volunteers, and supplied in convenient breathable bags which can be moved on a sack barrow and stored until the logs are needed. Norfolk Wood Warm checks the weight and moisture content and works out how much energy is contained in each bag of logs and customers pay a price per kWh unit.
What do we need?
We are looking for local people to come along to help to split, stack, barrow and bag the logs ready for delivery or collection.
We are also looking for an enthusiastic person, or small team, to co-ordinate the activities of the group.
People who contribute their time and energy receive a small discount on the cost of logs.
A few hours of fairly physical work, on a weekend, five or six times a year. There are a variety of jobs suitable for all abilities from chain-sawing (for qualified people), splitting, filling wheelbarrows, stacking logs into bags, moving bags on sack barrows. If you are strong enough to pick up a log there will be something you can do to help.
- We will provide: axes, mauls, barrows, bags, tea, coffee and biscuits.
- You provide: stout shoes, gloves, packed lunch (if you can stay all day).
- You will get: fresh air, exercise, community spirit, local news and a supply of good quality winter logs for the minimum cost. (Volunteers receive a discount).
Sessions run from 10.30am to 4pm at our site just outside Reepham.
There will be a first meeting at 10.30am on Saturday 25th May 2013 at Whitwell Station Tea House, Reepham. We will have an initial chat about the club followed by some hearty splitting and bagging of logs. If you would like to come along please let us know.
