My name is Mark Davis. I was born and raised in Hednesford, and have recently moved back to live in the Chase, I still work in the town. When I saw the first reports of the plan for "substantial reform" of the Forestry Commission I was concerned about what it could mean. I set up a Facebook Group and within 10 days 200 people had joined it, we're now over 3,000. As the national campaign to Save Britain's Forests grew I was determined to make sure Cannock Chase stayed in public hands.
Although I am a member of the Labour Party this campaign is completely non-political. I just want to Save Cannock Chase.
Following the Government's apparent U-Turn we want to use the passion we've generated for the Chase to good ends.
