If you go up to St Kenelm’s Pass you will see the result of a true community effort by volunteers to stop further damage to our beautiful Clent Hills.
Bob Ayres National Trust Clent Hills head ranger has provided the raw timber. Richard Marchant (pictured) the owner of the Tree Company based at St Kenelm’s wood yard provided the machinery and manpower to harvest the timber, haul it in and mill it into posts. Stuart and Sadie Geggie of Highcourt Farm provided yard space, tractors and helped install. Jordan from Heritage Maintenance Services provided the post knocking machinery and operated it.
This was a collaborative project made up of volunteers and no-one has charged for their time or use of equipment. They all recognized the damage caused by off-road activity and felt compelled to do something.
The Parish Council, our district councillor (Margaret Sherrey) and county councillor (Karen May) all have had a hand in this.
