Email from Hannah Worker, Freshwater Habitats Trust Project Assistant

Hi Everyone,

As I’m sure many of you know that New Forest is a unique and outstanding place for wildlife. However not everyone knows how quite how special it is for freshwater wildlife too.

This July we, the Freshwater Habitats Trust, are holding the New Forest Water Wildlife Month. This is a celebration of the fantastic freshwaters of the New Forest.

We will be holding events every weekend through the month, offering opportunities for people to learn about and interact with their local ponds, rivers and stream. The events also offer the chance to take part in conservation work for some of the Forest’s rarest wetland plants and animals, and in current research on water quality.

For a full list of event please visit our website:

All the events are completely free and open to all, although places are limited so please book by emailing Jo at

Please can you share this email with your contacts, friends, family and anyone else you think might be interested in getting involved. Information can also be found on social media (#NewForestWaterMonth), please retweet us.

Kind regards,


 Hannah Worker Freshwater Habitats Trust Project Assistant

Many residents of the Parish will be interested in the NFDC Local Plan Review.

We will be building a body of information here as we find out more and identify the issues that affect and concern us here in Ellingham, Harbridge and Ibsley. To begin with we have put together a page of links that will help you quickly get access to the online resources that will enable you to get a clearer picture of the decision making processes and findings by the NFDC.
