Cat­tle grazing

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

Bea­cons­field Freema­son John Clark with Sarah Wil­liamson of the air am­bu­lance FREEMA­SONS have helped keep an air am­bu­lance fly­ing thanks to hefty do­na­tions.

Bea­cons­field Freema­sons has given about £35,000 to Thames and Chiltern Air Am­bu­lance over the past year.

The 21 lodges and nine chap­ters at the Wind­sor End Ma­sonic Cen­tre handed £6,500 to the char­ity.

Bea­cons­field and Bucks Freema­sons as­sis­tant head, John Clark, said: “Hats off to all the Bea­cons­field Freema­sons who have lived up to our prin­ci­ples of friend­ship, de­cency and char­ity, by sup­port­ing this vi­tal ini­tia­tive.”

See the Freema­sons’ work in the com­mu­nity at www.buck­spgl. org. BEA­CONS­FIELD: Two cat­tle were brought in to graze at Holt­spur Bank Lo­cal Na­ture Re­serve from Au­gust 18 for a twoto three-week trial pe­riod.

The an­i­mals, Ver­ity and Icarus, are owned by the City of London. If the scheme is deemed suc­cess­ful, it is hoped more may be used to graze the land in the au­tumn.

The town coun­cil, who made the agree­ment with the City of London, said cows were bet­ter for grazing than horses and it would know how suc­ces­ful the scheme was in a few weeks time.
