Newsletter update

As there is very little to report it has been decided that the next newsletter will be sent out in the new year.

Fallow Deer: One of the County Ranger and deer wardens for Staffordshire has notified us that on Friday 16th June at 9pm the Rangers were alerted by Staffordshire police of a vehicle collision involving a fallow deer doe, which was hit and killed on the A51 at Hopwas Woods. This is the first time that they have recorded Fallow deer in this part of Staffordshire. They know that Hopwas is home to Muntjac and the occasional passing Red deer, but never have they recorded Fallow.

Old Quarry Adjacent to Coton and Hopwas Social Club off School Lane

The owner of the old quarry situated off School Lane, and adjacent to the Social Club, has kindly informed us that he will be carrying out improvement works on the site over the next week or so, which will involve heavy machinery having to be brought in to deal with large lumps of concrete. The owner continues to manage the site in such a way that it is preserved as a natural area and there will be no adverse effect on its overall appearance. Our thanks to the owner for keeping us informed. If you should have any queries please contact Ray Vanstone.

Hopwas Wood Update as at 2 October 2016

From Major Jim Salisbury:

WHITTINGTON RANGES AND HOPWAS WOOD UPDATE

 The area of the ranges has had to be closed off again due to continuing works to ensure the ranges and woods are safe for all to use.

Matters have taken some time due to some unforeseen issues which are being resolved and once complete will enable us to fully open the ranges for Military use.

As and when we know of the dates for shooting to be carried out we will keep you informed via these firing notices and local media.

The small 25mtr no danger area ranges will continue to be in use.

The area of Hopwas Wood will also be used for Military training so please pay heed to any signage giving warnings or advice from Military personnel.

The bridleway from the White House is open for Public Access.
