Judi Dench patron of Countryside Restoration Trust

Starting out in 1933, The Countryside Restoration Trust (CRT) aims to promote a working countryside that can still protect and encourage wildlife.

 

This year, the well-known actress Dame Judi Dence was named as its Silver Jubilee Patron for 2018.

 

Dame Judi says: “It was such an honour to be asked to be involved in this very special year. The CRT was the pioneering charity in wildlife friendly farming and the biggest tribute to its success is the fact that so many other organisations have followed in its footsteps. I have been privileged to visit several of the Trust’s farms and the work being done is tremendous. In this Jubilee Year we remember not only those who set the Trust in motion but we look to the future as farming, the countryside and Britain’s wildlife needs the pioneering work of the CRT more than ever before.”

 

Robin Page, the CRT’s Chairman says:” It is such an honour to have Dame Judi involved. She has a deep love for nature as anybody who saw her recent BBC documentary ‘My Passion for Trees’ will understand. We have several celebratory events throughout 2018 and hope Dame Judi can join us whenever her heavy work-load allows”.

 

 

 

Future

 

The Trust plan to set up numerous demonstartion farms across the across Britain to showcase how sensitive farming can protect wildlife, produce quality, seasonal food and preserve our countryside for future generations.

 

The CRT is also pleased that David Mills, ex-farmer and proprietor of the British Wildlife Centre in Surrey has recently become a Trustee of the CRT.

 

He says: “There are so many challenges facing farming, the countryside and its wildlife that I am flattered to have been asked to join the Trustees of the CRT. Farming is a very important part of Britain’s cultural and economic life – but so too is our indigenous wildlife. We must make sure that it is not forgotten during a time of huge agricultural change.”
