BH&HPA 2017 Conference

Philip attended the BH&HPA Annual Conference held in January 2017 at the Birmingham Metropole. There were a variety of useful seminars and presentations, which we feel will improve the operation of our Parks.

The attached photograph is of Philip being congratulated by David Bellamy for Lillybrook retaining the David Bellamy Conservation Award – Gold.

We are delighted to continue to hold the gold award for a further year, and are always striving to improve our environmental credentials.

New Lillybrook Seating Area

folly1

 

The Lillybrook staff have recently constructed a new seating area on the grass verge opposite the field. The steel folly was handmade and surrounds a slabbed area with a wooden bench. Beryl Cutts (No.79 Lillybrook) and ourselves have decided to dedicate the Bench in loving memory of Roy Cutts, Beryl’s husband who lived happily on the Park for 13 years. We hope that the shrubs Beryl has kindly planted will in time, grow up through the folly to form a semi enclosed area for residents to sit and enjoy the views.
