Animal Accidents

The reduction of animal accidents on the roads across the Forest is something in which the New Forest Trust is heavily invested.

Each year we work with the National Park and support the animal safety campaign, and with a generous donation from The Pig Hotel this summer we were able to fund the re-printing of the brilliant ‘Sally the Pony’ storybooks which we help distribute across the Forest. 

It therefore gave us a huge amount of pleasure to award the New Forest Trust Diamond Jubilee Award for 2023 to Gilly Jones at the New Forest and Hampshire County Show in July – Gilly has worked tirelessly for many years to reduce animal deaths and injuries across the Forest, and her work has made a real difference to the speed of traffic in the Forest which means that all of us, including the livestock, are safer – thank you Gilly and congratulations!
