MALVERN HILLS CONSERVATORS. Board and Hereford County Counoll. Monday. Present: Mr F Ballard (chair- man) presiding. Lieut.-Col. Thurlow, Messrs G A Jones, E Karslake, F A Moerschell, T A Pedlingham, A Wilesmith, and A D Melvin. The Chairman mentioned that in regard to the Herefordshire County Council taking into consideration the question of giving help towards the maintenance of the Jubilee Drive, he and Mr G A Jones had attended a meeting of the Highways and Bridges Com- mittee in regard to the matter. The Com- mittee received them, and were very courteous. Their report to the County -Council was received and adopted, and the Highways and Bridges Committee was asked to take the matter into consideration at their next quarterly meeting, so that they would hear again from that Committee on the matter. Mr Jones said the Chairman had put the matter very clearly before the Highways and Bridges Committee, and he presumed that it had been referred back to them to investi- gate, and he suggested that the Clerk should write to th$t Committee and point out that they had power to pay towards the Jubilee- road. The Hereford authority said they were not a rich but a poor body, but in comparison to them the Conservators were a poverty-stricken body, and Herefordshire ought to come to their assistance. It was not right to say the Jubilee Drive was a local road, for it was used by people from all parts of England and Wales. The Chairman It is a national road. Mr Wilesmith looked upon it as relieving the County Council of Hereford of a great deal of expenditure on road maintenance. Mr Jones said it was the only public road between Malvern and Hereford. Mr Wilesmith moved that this matter be left in the bands of the deputation. Mr Moerschell seconded, and said Messrs. Ballard and Jones deserved the thanks of the Conservators for the trouble they had taken. The motion was carried. THE QUARRY TRAFFIC. The Chairman said there was a matter which did not concern their Board, but which would be interesting to the members, and he produced a copy of an agreement be- tween the Herefordshire County Council and the Colwall Park Quarry Company. It was headed "Colwall Park Extraordinary Traffic," and the Surveyor recommended that an agree- ment for the Colwall Park Quarry Company to pay 3d per ton per mile hauling be entered into. This was included in the Highways and Bridges Committee's report to the Herefordshire Council, and the report adopted without comment. That was a settlement between the Quarry Company and the Herefordshire County Council. Mr Jones said the Malvern Authority could not get the traffic made extraordinary on their side of the hills. In reply to the Chairman, the Assistant Ranger said he had repaired the holes in the Jubilee Drive with gravel, as directed. THE BY-ELECTION. The Clerk announced that Mr W T Price, builder, Saville Row, was elected a Conser- vator in the place of Mr M Jones, there being no other nomination. IMPROVEMENT ON THE HILLS. Mr Pedlingham suggested that there were <8ome tree guards which he thought the Conservators could be able to get for planting trees on the Jubilee Drive. Mr Moerschell offered to give 20 trees for the purpose, and the offer was gratefully accepted, and a committee appointed to carry out the selection and planting. DAMAGE TO TURF. The Ranger reported damage done to turf by brick hauling along the Jubilee Drive, from Wilson's Brickyard, Belmont, and the clerk was directed to send in a claim to the offenders. The Secretary of the West Malvern Im- provement Association has promised to sub- scribe J61 Is towards the funds for the path- way to tbe hills at Broome Lodge, and the new gate to the sams, FINANCE. It was resolve to issue the annual precepts on the overseers of the various parishes, for collection of the Conservators' rate.
