MALVERN HILLS CONSERVATORS. Gorse Fire season commenoea. A meeting of the Malvern Hills Conservators was held on Monday afternoon. Present Mr F Ballard (in the chair), Lieut-Colonel Thurlow, Dr Jacob, Messrs W Davis (who has returned from South Africa), A D Melviu, A Wilesmith, T A Pedlingham, F A Moerschell, W T Price, H H F,)ster (Deputy Clerk), A King (Ranger), and F Bourne (Assistant Ranger). Apologies for absence were received from Messrs Foster, Browne, G A Jones, W R Karslake and M H Orr Ewing. FIRE ON HEREFORDSHIRE BEACON. I The Ranger and Assistant Ranger reported that a gorse fire occurred on the Herefordshire Beacon on May 2nd. About two acres of gorse were burnt but as the ground was wet the turf was not dammaged. Mr Moerschell said that at Harrogate there were notices asking people not to throw matches or cigar or cigarette ends among the gorse, as this might lead to a fire which would damage the amenities of the place. The Deputy Clerk stated that the following letter addressed by Mrs Hollins (South Bank) to the Malvern Council, had been handed over to the Conservators "Could you bring before the Council a suggestion to place some wire paper- baskets on the hills this summer, with notices asking the public to be good enough to refrain from scattering paper about ? Last year the hill from the Well to the Beacon was quite spoilt by debris of that kind. Probably baskets and no- tices at the donkey shed at St Anne's Well (two) and about the Beacon (three to four) would do something to reduce this disfigurement of the hills at this part. It is only there that the an- noyance exists—not at all on the North Hill, and I believe not elsewhere." Mr Davis Is not this a matter which should go to the Agent to the Foley Estate Mr Moerschell Sir Henry Grey asked Mr Foster to bring it before the Conservators. It was decided to consider the letter at the next meeting, together with the question raised by Mr Moerschell. HILL PATHS AND SEATS. A letter was received from the West Malvern Improvement Association, calling attention to work needed on certain hill paths and seats. The Assistant Ranger said all the work mentioned in the letter was in hand. PICNIC AND PERAMBULATIONS. It was resolved to meet at the Lamb Hotel, West Malvern, June 8th, for a perambulation, and, provisionally, on the second Monday in July, at te plantation on the Jubilee Drive, when the Chairman will repeat the hospitality shown to the Board in former years. «
