DBCWG is made up of local residents who voluntarily give their time to protect, preserve and enhance local woodlands in Dalgety Bay.
There's a whole splurge in the more legalese type language below for those of you interested, but suffice it to say that the group really would like to encourage the Local Community to look after the surrounding environment for future generations to enjoy.
On 3 November 2014 it became Registered Charity No SC045205
