Praise for Tony Barnett from BHS Chief Executive
Bravo and well done to all!
Good for all of you.
Real access success.
I'm very impressed indeed.
Praise for Tony Barnett from Steve Yandall
Any person taking the time to know Tony soon realises that there is no fiction regarding this diamond (in the rough) of a man.
He achieves, in months,what others fail,over years, to even recognise as a target.
Working WITH Tony(and others) could replicate this success in multiple locations that have been 'requisitioned' through assumptive rather than legal means.Our rights have not been exercised(with the exception of Common Heritage) and thus Common Lands have been compromised.We are losing access through stealth rather than by law!
I believe that every BHS region should be encouraged to reregister Common Land to exercise our 900 year rights AND to guarantee access.I also believe that the BHS should be far more strident in demanding compliance with the law of those that impair equine enjoyment-this implies confronting bodies from the government down.
Good on you Tony and thanks from all environmental democrats!
