Lickey resident Keith Woolford has been named as a “Worcestershire Wildlife Hero” for his work at High House Wood in Lickey.

The awards, given by the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust as part of its 50th birthday celebrations, acknowledged the work of 37 people from around the county, all of whom received a framed certificate and a specially-commissioned badge at the awards evening at their WWT headquarters.

After several visits to High House Wood, vice-chairman of the Trust Graham Martin (pictured presenting the award to Keith) was suitably impressed by its management to nominate Keith for his part.

“It was certainly a real team effort with my fellow members and I’m very pleased to accept the award acknowledging this,” said Keith.

“We are indebted to the support given by Lickey & Blackwell Parish Council and all the volunteers who help litter-pick, clean our bench and more.

High House Wood holds regular community events , such as a “bat evening” and the planting of a fruit tree to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armistice.

There have also been two trail wildflower planting initiatives with the aim of reintroducing native flowers.
