Free chainsaw course for novices

We are running an experimental two-day chainsaw course for novices on
Sunday/Monday 4-5th July 2010 in Derbyshire, and may have space for one or
two people.

It would be free of charge, unless you would like a Lantra certificate from
the course, which would cost £28. There is scope for camping overnight on
site on the Sunday night (but probably not before). You would have to be
able to arrive by 9am on the Sunday morning, and you would need to bring
your own chainsaw (of any size and quality) and safety gear.

The course will focus mainly on maintenance, safety and crosscutting, but
not on felling trees. It will obviously feature in Living Woods!

If you are interested, and can definitely commit to the dates, please email
us asap. We are trying to get a good cross-section of types of people on the
course.
