Author Bill Bryson in 2007 became the CPRE's president and his aim is for people to be aware and passionate about protecting our natural wildlife. It feels like from a simple appreciation of our countryside a concern to preserve has been birthed. Presently it feels very vast, so as we think and pursue this I am hoping to make small changes, from letter writing to local and national governments to sponsored events. So please watch this space.

Over the bank holiday weekend, we went away with friends camping. It was a lovely time in parts but a little too chilly for me! Our Autumn is arriving fast, no signs of an indian summer as yet. As we drove through the stunning scenes of the west country to our south downs heritage, we talked about the beauty of wildlife and rural England. Then last night we so happened to watch a programme that highlighted concerns to conserve our natural wildlife and biodiversity. Both Richard and I responded to this by joining the charity Campaign to Protect Rural England http://www.cpre.org.uk/home
