Witchwood Discussion Group was started on 10 July 2000 (my birthday) by Steve Young. It provided a forum for Strawbs enthusiasts to exchange views and generated huge amounts of interest in the fan community - at its height it generated hundres of e-mails a day. Nigel Bennett had some Witchwood badges made up and Witchwooders convened on many occasions, at gigs and at the Bilston misuc sessions, which eventually spawned the Strawberry Fools. It was a very close and friendly community, to which it was a pleasure to contribute and belong to.
Steve took the decision to close Witchwood in 2091 as it was no longer really being used - Facebook has supplanted it.
