|We were very pleased to welcome CPRE’s new President, Bill Bryson, to Cheshire on Wednesday 10th October.
Bill is visiting the North West on his first regional tour as President, to meet our volunteers and learn more about the issues we are concerned with.
Cheshire CPRE took Bill to Broad Oak Farm, on the urban fringe in Trafford, to learn more about the challenges of farming in such an area, and about the farm’s successful educational access programme.
This was also a wonderful opportunity for us to launch our brand new set of posters promoting Cheshire CPRE’s local foods campaign and our ‘Buy Local’ Awards.
The posters were produced from pictures painted by Cheshire children during our competition last year, and Bill met winners, runners-up and their families, and a group of children from Warrington’s Glazebury Primary School, whose teacher had entered her class in the competition.
We will have more on Bill’s visit soon.
