Chalk Pits Ranger, Joe Williams, addresses Parish Council Meeting

Keen to make sure that parishioners know all about the Local Nature Reserve and that they consider helping to keep it in good condition, Joe Williams spoke to a packed Parish Council meeting in November.

Joe explained that he is a relatively new ranger at the Queen Elizabeth Country Park but that he has got particular responsibility for the Buriton Chalk Pits.

He feels that it is a great addition to the Country Park and he praised the Parish Council for winning the substantial Lottery Grant which has helped to improve accessibility and awareness.
