Do you know someone who would appreciate a present that will help protect the future of accessible green spaces for all?
Sixteen of our local correspondents, with trustees and other friends and staff, met at Losehill Hall, in the heart of the Peak District National Park, for a training weekend in mid October. The event was generously funded by the Bantam Trust and the Ramblers Holidays Charitable Trust.
We held a number of sessions and workshops during which correspondents swapped ideas and expertise, and set out their thoughts on how we can help them to do their job even more effectively. The weekend also included a ‘balcony walk’ around the contours of the Hope Valley which was led by our member, Peter Townsend.
We were pleased to welcome Anne Robinson, chairman of the Campaign for National Parks, and our vice-president John Riddall and his wife Lilian at dinner on the Saturday evening. Five attendees ventured up Losehill and round to Hollins Cross before breakfast.
The weekend was generally considered a great success.
