Family ties

A Shropshire park warden has stepped down after more than 45 years – and will be handing over the reins to his son. Fred Fallows, 65, is a well-known face at Chetwynd Deer Park over the years but bowed out of the role at the end of March.

“I was employed as gamekeeper and woodman in 1972 by the Borough family, who’d owned the estate for four generations,” says Fred. “Following the sale of the estate, I became employed by Newport and District Agricultural Society. I’m very proud to have worked for the society and been so heavily involved in Newport Show, Chetwynd Deer Park and their educational programmes.”

Fred plans to stay involved, helping to deliver the on-site programmes. He adds, “I’ll also be supporting the planning and delivery of Newport Show on Saturday 13 July, and making time to enjoy the day in a more relaxed way. It’s an honour to be handing over the role to my son Martyn who’s grown up on the estate and shares the same passion for the deer and park as I do.”
