AGM July 2016
The Annual General Meeting took place on 23rd July and included presentations to Ian Sier who is leaving the area after being the linchpin of the campaign to save Speckled Wood for many years. A full report will follow.
The chair, Tony Polain, presented the annual report which you can download here about the Trust’s achievements including the successful designation of the whole wood as community open space in the Council’s Development Management Plan and future plans including the Village Green and the Ore Valley Greenway. The Trust now needs to change gear as it ceases to be a campaigning group and starts to acquire land to ensure the Wood is safe from development in perpetuity.
