Unfortunately, today these events were called off, due to the terrible weather forecast. The ground is sodden and there is no chance of lighting the gorse, so the demonstration would not have worked.

POSTPONED (was 11th October) Exmoor
POSTPONED (was 12th October) Dartmoor
SWUF is organising workshops for knowledge exchange between moorland managers and practical demonstrations of the quad-mounted ‘fogger’ equipment used by Dartmoor commoners.
Question – what demonstrations would you like to see?
The Exmoor Moorland Landscape Partnership has funding for practical moorland management demonstrations. What kind of machinery or skills would you like to see in action? Would you like to see how well contractors have tackled gorse and bracken, on Exmoor and elsewhere? You might have an example you would like to share with other moorland farmers and managers.
Let us know your ideas, and perhaps together we could make it happen. Tel: 01398 322164. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
