Annual Review

We care for 3,000 acres of the Malvern Hills and Commons from the high open hilltops, to the tree lined avenues, to the banks of the River Severn.  Our focus is to protect and conserve the important features and special qualities of this landscape and to keep the Hills open for recreation and enjoyment.

We have now published our Annual Review, for the period from the 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2022, which highlights some of the work we've carried out to care for the Hills and Commons over the last 12 months.

Accounts - How we are funded

Approximately 60% of the cost of managing the land under our jurisdiction is met by a levy on Council Tax payers from the Wards of Malvern, together with the parishes of Colwall, Guarlford and Mathon. The rest of the costs are supported by income from car parking, grants from outside funding bodies, donations and other fundraising activities.  

As a charity, donations and legacies are vitally important to us as they enable us to achieve more than just the basic maintenance work. 

There is an Annual Meeting of Levy Payers each year at which our accounts are publicly presented.  Following this they are lodged with the Charity Commission and published and also are available to view the meeting from the Trust's Office.
