Harnser Wood

In the year 2000, as part of the Millennium Celebrations, The Woodland Trust, in partnership with the Norfolk Federation of WIs, created “Harnser Wood”.

The Board of Trustees (at the time) together with many local WI’s and their families worked alongside the Woodland Trust to plant a variety of native trees. L-R Pat Coles, Ann Morgan, Aleathia Mann and Jean Wilson.

In 2019 the Norfolk Federation celebrated their centenary and a commemorative plaque was produced to be mounted on the existing plinth at Harnser Wood.

The Centennial Re-dedication will take place on Saturday 21st August 2021 at 11.00 am. Parking available at St Mary’s Church, Elsing, NR20 3EA. Download Flyer
