Congratulations to The Conservators of Ashdown Forest from East Sussex who have been honoured with the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service.
The Group received the award from the Lord Lieutenant of East Sussex at a presentation ceremony very generously sponsored and hosted by Ashdown Park Hotel on Monday 19th September 2016.
Up to 150 volunteers support the work of the Forest through a range of different activities. The Lord Lieutenant, Mr Peter Field said “The Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service is only awarded to those organisations that are innovatively moving forward volunteering in our Country. Conservators of Ashdown Forest are doing just that. It is the equivalent of a group MBE and I want to add my congratulations to everyone involved. It is a great achievement”
