Deadwater Valley Trust supporting WBRC at Hogmoor Inclosure
The Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company (WBRC) has partnered with The Deadwater Valley Trust (DVT) to provide a ranger service at Hogmoor Inclosure over the next two years.
Brendan Finnegan from DVT will take the lead on the practical elements of the management and maintenance, which will see DVT supply WBRC with 24 hours of ranger service per week at the Inclosure.
Assisting Finnegan is countrywide ranger Terry Read and community ranger Jenny Clarke. Jamie Cummins, senior countryside ranger, will also be involved in a management role.
Alongside management and maintenance, the team will also provide nature and educational based events.
The team will be based at their current offices at The Pheonix Centre on Station Road.
The WBRC chose to partner with DVT because the organisation is well established in Bordon and has been managing the Deadwater Valley local nature reserve since 1989 and the Bordon Inclosure SANG since Jnauary 2016, working closely with Whitehill Town Council and East Hants District Council.
A series of events have already been planned and include:
- 20 September, 10:00-11:30 – identifying species and fauna
- 11 October, 18:00-19:00 – signs of autumn walk in Hogmoor Inclosure
- 7 November, 10:00-11:00 – preparing for winter in the woods
Commenting James Child, Project Lead, Whitehill & Bordon Regeneration Company, says:
“Hogmoor Inclosure is an important part of the outdoor community space for the people of Whitehill & Bordon. We understand the importance of protecting and maintaining this area, and are very pleased to have partnered with the DVT in order to do this.”
