Witchwood Discussion Group was started on 10 July 2000 (my birthday - a coincidence!) 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 hundreds 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 music sessions, at the inappropriately named Quality Inn hotel, just off the M6, which eventually spawned the Strawberry Fools. It was a very close and friendly community, to which it was a pleasure to contribute and belong.
Steve took the decision to close Witchwood in 2091 as it was no longer really being used - Facebook has supplanted it.
