Working to protect and enhance the Lickey Hills and their environs
Following the attempted escape made by the duckhouses last year a new method of anchoring them had to be devised. On 4th May 2016 Ranger Dave, ably assisted by Mike and Pete from LHS plus other volunteers managed to successfully relaunch one of them. The other two will be sent out to join them soon. Well done to all involved.
Dave Beardsmore – congratulations to Dave who was recently appointed to the Ranger team based in the Country Park. Dave has been a Ranger Warden on the Lickeys for many years and his promotion is richly deserved. Dave is always supportive of the LHS and we look forward to working with him in the months and years ahead.
Vicci Guest – Vicci has been based at the Lickeys for many years and she will be well known to many of our members. Vicci has recently been appointed to a post in Sutton Park which is much closer to her home in the north of the city. We thank Vicci for all of her work on the Lickeys and wish her well in her new post in Sutton.
It is with great sadness that we have to inform you all of the death of Rob Amos. Rob was a hard working member of the LHS committee for many years and along with his wife Peggy, was a great supporter of the Society. Rob was actively involved in the local community in so many ways. He was a leading member of the team responsible for the annual Barnt Green Fireworks display amongst many other interests and activities. Rob will be sorely missed by the many people who have had the privilege of knowing and working with him. Rob was a great man who has contributed so much to the community, especially in the Lickey, Barnt Green areas and beyond. Our thoughts and prayers are at this time with Rob’s wife Peggy, his family and his many friends.
