The Friends Of Etching Hill would like to publicly thank our MP, Amanda Milling, for bringing to a successful conclusion an issue relating to the management of Etching Hill. She established that the Hill is classed as common land / village green and that the management as such, should be left in the hands of the Charitable Trustees, who are supported by volunteers from the Friends Of Etching Hill. Both groups have been working together to improve the biodiversity, restore the heathland and bring good management skills to this beauty spot that forms part of the A.O.N.B. The requirement to plant 24 oak trees has now been relinquished which means the views from the hill will remain for future generations to appreciate. Amanda Milling has assisted us in negotiating a successful outcome in this matter.
