Promoting Diamond Jubilee Woodland . . . .

Posted by davidburbage on December 5, 2011

 Had the great privilege to be invited to a reception in the River Room at the House of Lords last week. Pictured speaking is Lord Strathclyde, on his left the CEO of the Woodlands Trust Sue Holden, and on the far left former MP Tim Boswell (now Baron Boswell of Aynho).

The reception was to celebrate the Jubilee Woods project, which the Borough is doing its best to take part in. Ideally, the creation of a 60 acre wood to form a Diamond Jubilee Wood would be the contribution from the organisation or local authority concerned. There were a few other local authorities represented, but it was a good opportunity to meet with some of the key players driving the project forward.

Also present (not pictured) were Clive Anderson, the president of the Woodlands Trust and Richard Benyon, the Newbury MP and junior agriculture Minister.

Expect more on this topic as we go into 2012!
