CHANGES TAKING PLACE AT THE FOREST BEE, – Autumn 2014
Wendy, after gifting a huge amount of time to help bring it into being has now chosen to take on a full time job, and has consequently withdrawn from The Forest Bee. Taking her place is Caroline Jones of Fashion Revived, who has been the creator of the latest edition of The Forest Bee – phew, what a relief for Jaqui, who was not in any way looking forward to having to learn a whole new software programme – she’s a bit of a technophobe, so very pleased to welcome in Caroline who just knocked it together with such ease and flow! Caroline, like Jaqui, is a great lover of our beautiful Forest of Dean, and brings new ideas about ways we can help support communities here in the Forest of Dean. Caroline has also taken on the role of dealing with Advertisers, whilst Jaqui continues with course providers and local Adult Education institutions.
Wherever you are based in the Forest of Dean, this is your go-to place for courses and workshops. From yoga to cake decorating, kinesiology to permaculture, we have it covered. So what are you waiting for? Grab a copy, surf our directory pages and book a course. You can learn a new skill and meet new friends. You never know where it may take you ….
