More news, no ads


A NEW Forest commoner has teamed up with a video production agency for a short film raising awareness about careful driving in the wake of a string of animal deaths on local roads.

Matt Wilson of Alto Media, also based in the Forest, produced the social media video with Gilly Jones who recently made a presentment to the verderers calling for speed cameras on the notorious accident blackspot Roger Penny Way, the B3078.

Ms Jones also launched a petition call for the New Forest District Council to support the bid for cameras.

As reported in the A&T, 10 animals died on the stretch in the fortnight following Christmas Day.

Meanwhile, graphic designer Kevin Willshire has been using his time while furloughed to produce a series of Facebook posters offering a raft of local animal safety advice.

He said his partner is a passionate horse rider who frequently encounters problems with local road users and wanted to raise awareness.

Mr Willshire has designed seven posters on issues such as passing horse riders at a safe distance, not feeding New Forest ponies, and awareness of animals on the roads.

The posters have been widely shared on social media.
