The New Forest Trust Competition
| 21st Sep 2011|
Recently, the Montagu Arms sponsored a competition launched by the New Forest Trust for local children to design a poster to promote safer driving and lower speeds on New Forest Roads. The campaign was launched in various Secondary Schools around The Forest. Year 7 & year 8 pupils have designed posters to help educate the public about road safety issues to reduce the amount of animal casualties on the New Forest roads. The winning entry was from Bryher from Ringwood School and will be displayed in various locations around the New Forest. View the winning entry here.
Animal accidents happen on New Forest roads with horrendous regularity. The Commoners Defence Association is particularly concerned about the injuries and deaths of livestock. The British Deer Society members have the same concerns for the loss of deer on New Forest roads.
The New Forest Trust paid for a report on animal accidents and as a result and at the request of the Commoners Defence Association paid for and distributed leaflets through various local organizations. To date the Trust have printed and distributed two runs of 15,000 leaflets, the second in conjunction with the British Deer Society New Forest branch.
With the winner of the poster competition just announced, The New Forest Trust and the Montagu Arms hope to raise further awareness to help lower the number of animal accidents in the New Forest.
