CPRE has changed its emblem from the first, to the second image:

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 that 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’.

Your parish council are members of the organisation and clerk Mike Elliott can be contacted for details on 0115 937 6506.

 

Notts County Council are asking local residents to inform them at 0115 977 4802 if they are aware of any public footpaths on arable land in the parish that are being obstructed by crops.

Senior Rights of Way Officer for the joint partnership, Jane Baines, is anxious to ensure that obstructions do not take place and says they will write to any farmers who do not heed requests to rectify the position where blockage are allowed to occur.

The County say that where obstructions do occur they will ask the farmers to remove them or the County Council will carry out the work and charge the farmer for it.

 

Rushcliffe Borough Council are looking to appoint tree wardens in local parishes and are appealing for people to contact them to support their aim.

The Borough say they would hope to be able to appoint the wardens in every parish in their area, and are to launch their project at Rushcliffe Country Park at Ruddington on Saturday June 22, between 11.30am and 3pm.

Tree wardens can be appointed by their local parish council and would be the parish contact for all things tree related in their area.  One of their jobs would be to report early signs of pest, disease and vandalism as well as gathering information, survey and record information about trees important for wildlife and the heritage of the parish.     They would also be able to look out for opportunities to plant more trees in the local community, enhancing the environment for parishioners.

Mr Paul Phillips, the Environmental Sustainability Officer for the Borough, says he can be contacted on 0115 9148595 and he would be happy to pass on more information to anyone interested.
