WHEN you think of equipment for a good workout, it’s not bow saws and loppers that automatically come to mind.

Now outdoor fans are being invited to follow the example of a Wragby couple who are giving Mother Nature by helping to improve Lincolnshire’s woods.

Louise and Rod Buckingham are two of the latest recruits to the Forestry Commission’s groundbreaking woodland workout project, which started in 2009.

The initiative, run in partnership with the Lincolnshire Limewoods Project, gives people the chance to keep in trim by nurturing new habitats for wildlife at Osgodby Wood, near Market Rasen, and Great West Wood, near Wragby.
