New man makes his pledge on wildlife
1:40pm Sunday 15th July 2012 in News
THE new man at the helm of Malvern Hills Conservators has pledged to continue the charity’s work for the benefit of wildlife, the local community and visitors to the area.
Stephen Bound has joined the organisation as director from the Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.
The 44-year-old has almost amassed almost 20 years of experience in land management and conservation, working in Shropshire, North Wales, Surrey and Yorkshire.
He said: “I’m delighted to be working for the Conservators and to be involved in managing this iconic and nationally important area.
“It’s already clear to me there is a very knowledgeable and dedicated team here who are doing a great job of preserving the hills and commons.”
Mr Bound takes over from Ian Rowat, who left the organisation after more than a decade in charge at the end of March.
