09 September 2019News from CPRE
is changing to
CPRE, the Campaign to Protect Rural England, has changed its emblem to a new more up to date one, and in trying to promote what they do, are returning to the principles of CPRE’s founders to promote, enhance and protect the countryside.
The organisation has reported a drop in membership and has accepted a request from those who are members to be more ambitious in their scope to achieve a countryside for everyone.
They say a multitude of surveys show that most people feel the countryside is an important national asset but extensive consultation over the past 18 months has shown that CPRE can be perceived as being negative, with this putting many potential supporters off.
The Chief Executive, Crispin Truman, says everyone will see a change in tone from CPRE, focusing more on the positive solutions that they have always tried to create. This is underpinned by their new strategic aims – ‘Connect people and countryside’, ‘Promote rural life’ and ’Empower communities’.
You can find out more by visiting the CPRE website.
Your parish council are members of the organisation and clerk Mike Elliott can be contacted for details on 0115 937 6506.

Plans are being formulated nationally for events in May 2020 to mark the 75th anniversary of the ending of WW2, and the parish council are looking for ways to join in the activities that will be taking place.
The council welcome any suggestions from residents for ideas for activities and events that might be held in the village in order that we can be part of the nation’s tribute to all those who gave their lives and those who kept the country running during the most challenging times between 1939 and 1945.
