TWO people from Bromsgrove have been honoured by the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust.

Pam Wearing and Keith Woolford were recently presented with a Wildlife Hero award at Worcestershire Wildlife Trust’s headquarters, Lower Smite Farm.

Each had been nominated for doing great things for wildlife in their local areas.

Pam has a wildlife habitat in her garden for the deer, badgers and foxes, and Keith leads the management group that looks after High House Wood, a small privately owned ancient woodland that adjoins Lickey Hills Country Park.

Sadie Carr Simons, from the trust and organiser of the awards ceremony, said: “This is the second awards ceremony that we’ve held and it’s been fantastic to meet so many people who are helping wildlife where they live.

“We’ve met farmers who champion habitats for wildlife, volunteers who take care of their local greenspaces, individuals who monitor their local wildlife and people who are inspiring the friends, family and the next generation about the wonders of wildlife and our natural world.”

The aim of the awards is to highlight and congratulate individuals, groups, communities, businesses and schools that have helped wildlife during the last 50 years.

Pam and Keith were presented with a certificate and specially commissioned pin badge by the chairman of the trust, David Mortiboys.
