A NEW guide for Malvern residents is being delivered around town this week to encourage people to help care for the hills and commons.
The Malvern Hills Trust has produced a booklet with important information on how residents can help look after the hills, commons and other green spaces around Malvern which provide such a wonderful backdrop to their lives.
The Good Neighbours’ Guide offers tips and advice on a wide range of topics from car parking passes to Common Land and boundaries.
It is intended the guide will also be a way for residents to find out more about the Malvern Hills Trust and the work they do.
Conservation manager Jonathan Bills said: “We care for a huge area of land in and around Malvern and we have over 20,000 neighbours who can readily enjoy the open spaces.
“But many activities, sometimes well-intentioned, can have a negative effect on the area’s character, wildlife or on other visitors.
“Using this guide, local residents and the trust can work together to help keep this nationally important landscape special for years to come.”
The parishes of West Malvern, Malvern Wells, Malvern Link will all be receiving their Good Neighbours’ Guide in the next week.
Residents of Welland have already received their copies.
Other parishes including Great Malvern, Sherrard’s Green, Guarlford and the Old Hills near Callow End will receive their copies in the spring.
