DUNDRY HILL GROUP

 

SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

Following a Special General Meeting of Dundry Hill Group on Friday 25 November 2005, the Group has now been wound up. This follows a period when it became impossible to find enough volunteers to elect a committee.

The notes of the S.G.M. are available in PDF format here, and the letter with the agenda for the meeting is here. This website will remain as a record of what Dundry Hill Group achieved during its period of existence.

Malago Valley Conservation Group has undertaken to maintain the Malago Spring artwork and to use the funds it has 'inherited' from D.H.G. to support projects which reflect D.H.G.'s objectives. You can visit the Malago Valley Conservation Group website at www.mvcg.org.uk (opens in a new window).

 

Dundry Hill is a very special place. It is a long ridge, running east-west along the southern edge of Bristol. Although not high (230 metres), it visually dominates the surrounding areas - the housing estates of south Bristol to the north and the farmland and villages of the Chew Valley to the south.

Poised between town and country, it is under particular pressures. The Dundry Hill Group is a community group dedicated to caring for the Hill and its slopes. The Group wants to reduce fly tipping, promote the maintenance of rights of way and practical countryside management, and increase the number of people enjoying and caring for the area. The area covered by the Group is roughly Winford to Norton Malreward and Chew Magna to the southern estates of Bristol.
