Please remember, all BDS Members of any Area (including Hampshire Area Members taking part in Hampshire Area Drives) must be fully paid-up members of the BDS before taking part in BDS organized Driving Events (with the exception of training events which take place in a suitable enclosed area). Hampshire Area would also recommend that all whips participating in one of our Driving Events have their Membership Card with them at the time.
We have been asked by the Forestry Commission to kindly remind our members that we are allowed to drive on gravel tracks only and not across the lawn areas of the forest.
The path within the Aldridgehill Inclosure between the Keepers Cottage and the Rhinefield Road is designated as unsuitable for carriages. As there isn't a continuous gravel track, we should not be using it, although special permission may sometimes be granted at certain times of year following consultation. This is a particularly sensitive area with young deer and the Area is keen to cooperate with The Forestry Commission's request.
And finally a reminder to drivers to please have their forest permit disks displayed on either the harness or vehicle so as to avoid embarrassment if they are checked as the Forestry Commission continue to make random checks.
